From Alexandra Bohm, Ph.D. candidate at England's University of Sheffield School of Law, comes news of a workshop there, entitled "Doing Law Beyond the State: Research Methodologies in Comparative, EU and Public and Private International Law." Part of the law school's research project of the same name, the workshop will be held January 18-19, 2013; early-bird fee applies through November 23.
'An initial, “scoping workshop” brings together established and early-career scholars to have a “cross-generation” and cross-specialisation dialogue. We will adopt a ‘what have we learned?’ approach, considering how the growing interest in method and importance of theory among traditional approaches to legal scholarship has important impacts on the academy and on legal practice.'Scheduled presenters listed here; workshop details and registration here.
