IGLP: The Pro-Seminars

About IGLP Pro-Seminars

The IGLP periodically convenes Pro-Seminars designed for small groups of scholars engaged in collaboration aimed towards publication. IGLP Pro-Seminars typically meet in June and bring together between ten and fifteen active scholars, by invitation and application, working on a common topic. Pro-Seminars typically meet for 3-4 days at Harvard to brainstorm their evolving scholarly writing and advance their work towards publication.  Alumni of past Workshops are particularly encouraged to apply to Pro-Seminars.

In June 2014 we convened a Pro-Seminar on The Role of Law in Structures of Global Production.

The Pro-Seminar Sponsors

The IGLP is particularly grateful to Santander Universities, our Lead Sponsor for the IGLP June Residential Programming, who continue to show their faith in our efforts to develop innovative ideas and alternative approaches to issues of global law, economic policy, social justice and governance as well as to strengthen the next generation of scholars by placing them in collaboration with their global peers. Santander Universities have generously agreed to be the Leading Sponsor of the June Conference as part of their commitment to higher education. Harvard Law School is proud to join with them in this effort.

Santander Universities, was created by Banco Santander on the conviction that the best way of contributing to growth and economic and social process is by backing the higher education and research system. Banco Santander’s commitment to progress finds its expression in the Santander Universities Global Division, whose activities form the backbone of the bank’s social action and enable it to maintain a stable alliance with the academic world in Latin America, China, United States of America, Spain, Morocco, Portugal, United Kingdom, Germany, Poland, Singapore, and Russia. Santander Universities Global Division, a team of more than 2,100 professionals distributed across 17 countries, coordinates and manages Banco Santander’s commitment to higher education. Between 1997 and 2012, Banco Santander channeled $1 billion into sponsorship of academic, research and technological projects in support of higher education. There are now over 1,000 academic institutions receiving support from Banco Santander for the development of academics initiatives including Harvard University and the IGLP.

Santander Universities is the Lead Sponsor of our June Residential Programming at Harvard.

About the IGLP

The Institute for Global Law and Policy (IGLP) at Harvard Law School is a collaborative faculty effort to nurture innovative approaches to global policy in the face of a legal and institutional architecture manifestly ill-equipped to address our most urgent global challenges. We aim to provide a platform at Harvard for new thinking about international legal and institutional arrangements, with particular emphasis on ideas and issues of importance to the global South. We are particularly grateful to the Qatar Foundation, and to our other Sponsors the Real Colegio ComplutenseVisa Inc., and J&A Garrigues, S.L.P., who continue to show their faith in our efforts to provide a focal point for European, international and comparative law, and economic development study at Harvard Law School.
