Call for Papers (by Dec. 8) for ASIL International Economic Law Conference in Los Angeles
The American Society of International Law (ASIL) International Economic Law Interest Group (IELIG) calls our attention to a call for papers for an upcoming ASIL-IELIG conference that will be held on February 13, 2009, at the University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA) School of Law.
The goal of this conference (other than to have a meeting as far away from Washington DC as they could without continuing on to Hawaii) is to promote discussion of works in progress relating to international economic law. Paper proposals may address or be related to any international economic law topic. Interdisciplinary work is encouraged, but is not required. The call for papers is open to both new and established scholars, and practitioners in the field. Each session will have an appointed discussant and the colloquium format will allow sufficient time for constructive discussion and debate of the papers, which will be distributed in advance.
The deadline for paper proposals is December 8, 2008. Papers will be selected by the conference committee on a double blind basis. The conference committee is chaired by Prof. Richard Steinberg of UCLA, and includes Professors Ken Abbott, Andrea Bjorklund, Tomer Broude, William Dodge, Andrew Guzman, Amy Porges, and Alan Sykes.
For additional details, please refer to the Call for Papers here.
