CJICL Conference 2013
The Cambridge Journal of International and Comparative Law proudly presents:
Legal Tradition in a Diverse World
18 - 19 May 2013
Welcome to the website of the second Cambridge Journal of International and Comparative Law Conference, which will take place in Cambridge on 18 and 19 May 2013.
The 2013 conference will explore how legal tradition influences lawyers and the law, in both international and domestic contexts. Law does not develop in a vacuum; it is shaped by the intellectual, cultural and linguistic backgrounds of those who create and administer it. In a world where legal systems increasingly interact, the enduring power of legal tradition necessitates a constant recalibration of theoretical and practical tools to deal with diversity.
Highlights of the conference include:
- Keynote address by Judge Abdulqawi A. Yusuf of the International Court of Justice;
- Keynote debate ‘Anglo-American and Continental Traditions in Advocacy at International Courts and Tribunals’ between Professor Alain Pellet (Paris Ouest, Nanterre-La Défense) and Professor James Crawford (Cambridge), moderated by Professor Catherine Redgwell (UCL);
- Guest lecture ‘The State as a Legal Tradition’ by Professor H. Patrick Glenn (McGill), recipient of the Grand Prize of the International Academy of Comparative Law and President of the American Society of Comparative Law;
- More than 50 presentations in over a dozen panels;
- Conference dinner at Newnham College, Cambridge.
