CALL FOR PAPERS: Tel Aviv University - Faculty of Law: 3rd Annual TAU Workshop for Junior Scholars in Law: "Theory coming to life"


The Tel Aviv University Buchmann Faculty of Law is pleased to invite submissions to its third annual workshop for junior scholars in law. The workshop provides junior scholars with the opportunity to present and discuss their work and receive meaningful feedback from faculty members and peers, and aims to invigorate the scholars’ active participation in the community of international junior scholars in law.
Through law, theory comes into our daily lives in many ways. The workshop will explore the connection between theory and life:
different fields of law, such as criminal law, public law, corporate law, civil law, international law, cyber law, environmental law and others? What is the connection between human rights theories and their acceptance or rejection by different actors? How does legal theory deal with rapid changes in science and technology? What are the potential theoretical justifications to recognize obligations of states towards foreign individuals or communities? How can different actors, such as governments, philanthropists, public litigators and human rights organizations use theory to further their cause? How do lessons learned from historical events affect the formation of theory and practice?
We welcome junior scholars (doctoral candidates, VAPs, writing fellows and recent graduates of doctoral programs) from universities and research institutions throughout the world to submit abstracts engaging with the leading theme of the workshop.
Limited travel grants and accommodation will be available for participants with no institutional funding.
Submissions: Abstracts of up to 500 words of the proposed presentation (with a short bio and your current institutional affiliation(s)) should be submitted by email to TAU.junior.scholars@gmail.com by June 15, 2015
Applicants requesting travel grants and/or accommodation should indicate so in their submission, along with the city they expect to depart from and an estimate of the funds requested.
Applicants will be informed of acceptance or rejection by July 15, 2015. Selected presenters must submit their papers up to 10,000 words in length by September 30, 2015.
