IGLP: The Conference
IGLP’s 2013 Conference: New Directions in Global Thought: IGLP at Five will take place June 3-4, 2013 at Harvard Law School. Thank you to all of those who offered to share their ongoing research with us. The Conference Program will be posted May 1, 2013. We expect more than 200 scholars from around the world to share their work on a variety of panels during the Conference.
Our inaugural conference will be a celebration of the IGLP’s first five years and we invite all those interested in pursuing new thinking about law and global policy to join us in Cambridge. We are particularly hopeful that IGLP alumni and friends will find the Conference a useful opportunity to share their ongoing research. The 2013 IGLP Conference will be held directly following the 2013 Law and Society Association conference (May 30-June 2, 2013), which will be convened in Boston.
