Call for Papers: The Scholar, Teacher, Judge, and Jurist in a Mixed Jurisdiction

The World Society of Mixed Jurisdiction Jurists is pleased to announce a Fourth Worldwide Congress to be held at McGill University Faculty on Law from June 24 (open evening reception and lecture) through June 26, 2015. The theme of the Congress will be "The Scholar, Teacher, Judge and Jurist in a Mixed Jurisdiction."



Mixed Jurisdictions stand at the crossroads of the Common law and Civil law. They also frequently encompass other ethnic and religious laws. Rich in legal history and complex pluralism, they have are often seen as natural laboratories of comparative law.

The laws, methods, and institutions of mixed jurisdictions are inevitably affected by the influence and presence of different traditions vying for supremacy or requiring reconciliation. Their added complexity places special demands upon the training of judges and jurists, the staffing of courts, the teaching of private law, the research of scholars, and the task of law reform. To what extent have these challenges been met by the actors and institutions of mixed jurisdictions?

We propose to investigate these issues.

Proposals for papers on any number of topics are welcome. They may be submitted by jurists from any jurisdiction, and by members and non-members of the Society alike. Proposals should be submitted to WSMJJ General Secretary Seán Patrick Donlan (sean.donlan@ul.ie) by 15 October 2014. They should not exceed 500 words and should be accompanied by a curriculum vitae of one page only. The time allocated for delivery of papers will be no longer than 20 minutes. Papers delivered at the conference will be considered for publication.

The Society regrets that it cannot cover travel expenses of participants in the Congress.

Please reserve the date.
