The laws of the land lay the foundations of peace and order, and to ensure people progress in all aspects of their lives – whether in business, education, travel, health or recreation. The role of public officials is to create, scrutinize, implement and uphold the laws in order to protect the rights of every individual, corporate entity or institution. Educators of law thus possess the task of not only shaping each and every generation of legal practitioners into knowledgeable and responsible agents, but also the study of issues which surround the practice of law and its implementation across jurisdictions.

Drafting Model Laws on Indoor Pollution for Developing and Developed Nations

Event Information
Thursday, July 12, 2012 -
Friday, July 13, 2012
University of Colorado Law School, Boulder, CO

There are many professionals around the world tackling the technical, environmental, economic, and social issues related to widespread adoption of clean cook stoves in developing countries; however, those efforts are largely unsupported by laws that establish workable cook stove programs and funding for such programs. Hence, the primary purpose of the workshop is to demonstrate the extent to which a model law, as a societal instrument, can help address the global problem of indoor pollution.

ASIL-ESIL International Legal Theory Workshop: "Transatlantic Debates in International Legal Theory"

Event Information
Thursday, September 27, 2012, tbd -
Friday, September 28, 2012, tbd
Lauterpacht Centre, University of Cambridge

The workshop’s theme is “Transatlantic Debates in International Legal Theory.” On many levels, the interaction between North American international legal scholarship and its European counterpart(s) is working very well. Time and again, however, one finds that the underlying theoretical or philosophical framework is radically different. In this workshop we would like to explore that difference without letting ourselves be defined by it. Contributions analyzing, criticizing, denying or celebrating the difference are welcome, as well as papers exemplifying the various theoretical approaches to international law, be they “American,” “European” or neither. The most important function of this workshop is to intensify the transatlantic theoretical debate by bringing together scholars with diverse disciplinary, philosophical, and methodological perspectives to discuss cutting-edge research on international legal theory.
