We are pleased to invite you to participate in our 2017 International Meeting on Law and Society on June 20 - 23, 2017 in Mexico City! 

 

 

Walls, Borders, and Bridges: Law and Society in an Inter-Connected World 

 

Our International meeting in 2017, jointly sponsored by the Law and Society Association, the Research Committee on the Sociology of Law, and with the participation of the Socio-Legal Studies Association, the Japanese Association of the Sociology of Law, and the Canadian Law and Society Association, and other groups, will take place in a great metropolis, Mexico City.  This is our first meeting ever in Latin America, home of a rapidly growing, and impressive, law and society community.   Mexico City itself has had a turbulent history.  It was the capital of an empire, then of a colony, and then of an independent republic.  Its legal system has changed dramatically with each turn of the wheel.  It has a unique and rich tradition; a vibrant culture; but it also has faced issues of race, gender, and class; issues of human rights; issues of economic growth that are far more universal. 

 

We very much look forward to welcoming you to Mexico City. 

 

This year’s Program Committee is Co-Chaired by: 

•Lawrence M. Friedman, Professor of Law, Stanford University, Stanford, CA, United States 

•Manuel A. Gomez, Associate Dean of International & Graduate Studies, Florida International University College of Law, Miami, FL, United States 

•Masayuki Murayama, Professor, Meiji University, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Japan, and President of RCSL 

 

We invite the submission of Individual Paper and/or Session proposals.
