The 3rd Annual TAU Workshop for Junior Scholars in Law
Call for Papers - Theory Coming to Life
The TAU Buchmann Faculty of Law is pleased to invite submissions to its third annual workshop for junior scholars in law, which will take place in October 26-27, 2015.
Through law, theory comes into our daily lives in many ways. The workshop will explore the connection between theory and life: how different theories are applied through legal doctrines, how theory comes to life through its application and how theory influences society and our lives.
Relevant papers could, for example, discuss more specific questions
like: How does theory come into life in 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?
