Symposium Announcement: Transnational Public Interest Law: Lawyering for Social Justice

The Journal of International Law and Foreign Affairs Symposium - Transnational Public Interest Law: Lawyering for Social Justice

On 02/29/08, UCLA School of Law will host a free symposium on Transnational Public Interest Law: Lawyering for Social Justice.  This symposium will examine the forces behind the development of public interest law systems around the world over the past quarter-century and explore how this development has reshaped the definition and practice of public interest law. Two central dynamics have influenced the global terrain of public interest law: the acceleration of market integration policies and the rise of the international human rights movement. Our symposium will examine how these dynamics have interacted to facilitate the diffusion of public interest law across national borders, focusing specifically on how public interest law has factored into the broader movement to promote rule-of-law reforms in developing countries.  This symposium will present work from an international group of scholars presenting case studies and theoretical analyses of public interest law from their respective countries.
