A symposium on ‘Mediterranean Legal Hybridity: Mixtures and Movements’ is being hosted by the Department of Civil Law of the Faculty of Law and the Mediterranean Institute, both of the University of Malta. It is organised in conjunction with Juris Diversitas.
The deadline for proposals is Monday, 29 March 2010.
Juris Diversitas aims to explore the boundaries (i) between legal and normative traditions and (ii) between comparative law and other disciplines. Our members will meet midday on Friday, 11 June 2010 for our Annual General Meeting. There will also be an informal roundtable discussion of research related to our themes and open to anyone attending the symposium.
The symposium will begin on the afternoon of Friday, 11 June 2010 with a plenary speech, but most papers will be presented on Saturday, 12 June 2010.
• Our primary theme is the investigation of legal and normative diversity across the Mediterranean.
• A secondary theme is the establishment of dialogue between comparative lawyers and other disciplines.
While our primary focus is on the region, we will consider any proposals on the mixtures and movements of state laws and other norms. Among others, anthropologists, geographers, historians, and sociologists are all encouraged to participate.
An excursion into Valletta or Mdina is also being planned for Sunday, 13 June 2010.
Those interested in making a presentation (twenty minutes long) should email Dr Seán Patrick Donlan (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday, 29 March 2010 with a short (250 word) proposal.
Note that the conference fee is €100. Transportation and accommodation are not included. More details will follow shortly.
