Write On! Transnational law/Toronto

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

The Osgoode Hall Graduate Law Students Association, made up of LL.M. and Ph.D. candidates, seeks papers for its conference entitled No Boundaries: Transnational Law and a New Order of Global Governance, to be held May 9-10, 2011, at Osgoode Hall Law School, York University, Toronto, Canada.
Anchoring the conference -- slated to examine whether transnational law has included the ways states behave -- will be keynotes by Law Professors Jan Dalhuisen (King's College London) and David Hunter (American University).
Specifically welcomed are

papers that engage in questions of 'boundaries', particularly those with a focus on models of governance and transnational law. We are interested in a broad range of work dealing with the financial markets (commercial, banking and financial law), environmental protection, administrative law, corporate governance, corporate social responsibility, tax, e-commerce, intellectual property, women's studies, trade, human rights, crisis and emergency planning, labour and employment, health, disability, historical conceptions of regulation and governance, reflections upon the nature and operative conditions of governance, the relationship between state sovereignty and regulatory authority. Papers with an interdisciplinary focus and from graduate students in other disciplines are strongly encouraged.

Abstracts should be submitted no later than February 21, 2011 (another website said February 7, so get them in sooner rather than later.) Details on submission, the conference, etc., here.
