As a system in a continual process of transformation, law presents, opportunities for both new and familiar moments of (re)discovery. How do we prepare for our legal future? What lessons exist in our past? How do we or should we incorporate different legal traditions into Western legal teaching? How do indigenous laws shape and inform law school curriculum? What does discovery entail? What developments will shape our future in different areas of law? How do we prepare our students fro their future practice of law? How do we prepare for law schools of the future? In June 2010, the Canadian Association of law Teachers (CALT) will meet in Victoria B.C. to address these critical issues. We plan to host an environmentally responsible conference at the beautiful University of Victoria Faculty of law. We hope you can join us.
CALT invites proposals for papers which fit into the general theme of “Transformation: Law of (Re)Discovery”. These papers may relate to our popular Teaching and Learning stream – or may be placed within a more traditional interrogation of various substantive legal areas. Papers will be selected based on their scholarly quality and also on their ability to generate interesting discussion in plenary sessions or break-out groups.
Proposals may be in English or French. Please keep your proposal to a maximum of 250 words. If you are sending your proposal by email, please use the SUBJECT: “CALT Proposal.”
We ask that all submission be received by January 31, 2010. Submissions after that date will be considered only if space remains available. Please send your submission to:
