International Junior Faculty Forum

Conference Papers and Authors, 2008-2013

Harvard Law School and Stanford Law School co-sponsor an annual International Junior Faculty Forum to stimulate the international exchange of ideas and research among members of the legal academy, to encourage and further the work of younger scholars in the international community, and to surmount barriers between scholars of different traditions and cultures, in the interest of the development of legal scholarship on a transnational basis. Over the past five years, more than 50 papers have been selected for presentation.. The papers encompass a wide range of subjects and disciplines.
