Global Law and Global Legal Theory – Academic Knowledge in Question


Tokyo Conference
Tokyo, Japan | June 3-4, 2011
Partner Institution: Maison Franco-Japonaise de Tokyo

On June 3 and 4, 2011, Maison Franco-Japonaise, in partnership with the Clarke Program in East Asian Law and Culture, held a workshop in Tokyo on “the Globalization of Law.” Entitled “Global Law and Global Legal Theory – Academic Knowledge in Question,” the workshop convened scholars from Japan, the United States and Europe to focus on legal knowledge in the globalizing world. Confronting their respective methods and understandings of legal globalization, participants analyzed possible categories and theories for understanding legal globalization such as “private constitution,” the “creolization of law,” “law as translation.”
