Conference: Adversarial legalism à l’Européen, April 28-29, 2011

Posted: March 16, 2011

On April 28 and 29, 2011, The European Union Centre of Excellence project, housed at CCGES Yorkis pleased to present “Adversarial legalism à l’Européen”, a two-day conference which will bring together younger and more established scholars from the EU, the United States and Canada who are working on law and politics in a comparative context. This event is co-sponsored by York’s Centre for Public Policy & Law (YCPPL), the Office of the Principal, Glendon College, the Office of the Dean, Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies, the Office of the Vice-President Academic and Provost and the Law and Society Program in the Department of Social Science

The panels will explore the recent interest in the growth of the “American way of doing law” in different policy areas and countries in Europe and beyond.

The opening address and plenary session will take place in the afternoon of Thursday, April 28, 2011, followed by a welcoming reception and dinner. Prof. Dan Kelemen (Jean Monnet Chair and Director, Centre for European Studies at Rutgers University) has agreed to give the opening address. This will be based on his new book, Eurolegalism: The Transformation of Law and Regulation in the European Union, a recent publication of Harvard University Press. Friday, April 29, 2011 will see panels run all day.

The workshop will be held at Glendon College, York University’s bilingual (and picturesque) downtown campus.
