I have received the following announcement:
The Asian Law Institute (ASLI) Symposium
"Reflections on Legal Education in Asia"
Date: 10 - 11 November 2005, Thursday and Friday
Place: National University of Singapore (NUS)
The ASLI symposium on legal education is organized pursuant to a research project headed by the Deans of the Faculties of Law of the International Islamic University of Malaysia (IIUM) and National University of Singapore (NUS).
The symposium aims to bring together a distinguished group of legal scholars to present papers relating to legal education in Asia. The intention is for some of the papers to be published either in the inaugural issue of the Journal of the Asian Law Institute (ASLI) or as a monograph.
We would like to invite participants from your organization to the symposium. It will be an excellent opportunity to meet and forge closer ties with other scholars in Asian law and to discuss matters of interest relating to legal education in Asia.
SPEAKERS AND PROGRAMME
The two-day symposium will bring together about 20 presenters from leading institutions in Asia, and will touch on the landscape of legal education in Asia and pedagogical skills.
Please find the programme (tentative) at http://law.nus.edu.sg/asli/docs/progsymposium220905.pdf
The programme will be finalized and sent to registered participants by end October 2005. A copy will also be mounted on the web site.
Places for the symposium are limited to a maximum of 40. Registration will be on a first-come-first-served basis. Please download the Registration Form which contains information on conference fee and accommodation options at http://law.nus.edu.sg/asli/docs/RLE-Symposium.pdf.
Registration will close on 22 October 2005, or when the limit is reached, whichever is earlier.
We regret that flights and accommodation are to be arranged by participants separately and are not covered by the conference fee. Transport will, however, be arranged to and from NUS for the 2 hotel accommodation options listed.
