Write On! Global Legal Education

(Write On! is an occasional item about notable calls for papers.)

Workshop papers are being sought for a conference, to be held June 23 and 24, 2011, to mark the 30th anniversary of the Faculty of Law at Maastricht University in the Netherlands.
The conference theme is Global Legal Education. Organizers write:

[W]e will meet to discuss what is meant by 'global law'. What are the demands of the international labour market? How do we teach globalisation in the various domains of the law? What skills, competences and knowledge should be expected from future lawyers? How will future legal education need to change to meet the demands of globalised societies? How are global developments perceived differently in Asia, Europe and North America?
To help answer these questions, papers are welcomed on how to teach a number of subfields -- comparative criminal law, comparative tax law, environmental law, and private law -- as well as these additional workshop subjects:
► Legal education in a global legal environment: Training academics or practitioners?
► Skills in a legal curriculum
► Law and culture English language
► Impact of international and European law
► How to compare law
► Law: A transnational program? Development of joint programs
► Lawyers: A national profession?
Abstracts of no more than 500 words should be submitted by the deadline of January 15, 2011, to the respective workshop coordinator, as detailed at the conference website.
