The International University College of Turin (IUC) invites submissions for its first annual Comparative Law, Economics and Finance Conference to be held in Turin, Italy on December 12-13, 2008. The IUC is an innovative new educational program which introduces graduate students to the subjects of law, finance and economics in a co-disciplinary manner.
The conference will explore topics of global capitalism, law, economics, and the intersection of these disciplines in contemporary political, social and business issues. In keeping with the IUC’s stated goal of expanding the frontiers of conventional legal and finance education, those submissions of an interdisciplinary character are particularly welcome. Likewise, papers exploring contemporary legal education as it relates to the above themes are strongly encouraged. Theoretical papers exploring finance, law and development, and law and economics will be presented by several IUC faculty.
The deadline for submission of abstracts is May 1, 2008. Abstracts of no more than 400 words should be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a CV. Submissions are especially encouraged from young faculty, Ph.D. candidates or equivalent, and from graduate students in other academic fields distinct from, but related to law, economics and finance. Submissions from scholars in the “periphery” of conventional Western scholarship are welcome. Notification of acceptance shall be communicated via email no later than July 1, 2008.
Select submissions will also be published in a special conference issue of Global Jurist, a U.C. Berkeley Electronic Press journal hosted by the IUC. Information regarding publication guidelines will be provided at a further date on the IUC website.
