Law in Context: New and Interdisciplinary Approaches to Law

Read more about "Law in Context."

"Law in Context" will bring together Chinese legal scholars whose areas of expertise range from economic law to law and sociology to international financial law; a Tel Aviv University law professor whose research includes evidence and negotiation theory; and nine Cornell Law School professors who will present new research and serve as discussants. "Law in Context" panel presentations will investigate topics as diverse as social movements and legal knowledge, and corrective justice and legal decision making.

This conference is a project of the Clarke International Consortium on Law and Social Justice in Emerging Markets.  Together with Peking University Law School in Beijing, China, the Clarke Program is orchestrating a series of joint research projects, faculty exchanges, student exchanges, and annual conferences that foster cross-cultural discussion of law and social justice in emerging markets.  This is the third meeting of the Peking and Cornell Law School legal scholars.
