HiiL Law of the Future Conference 2011

Date(s) of Conference:

June 23-24, 2010


“Law of the Future” Conferences explore how law is changing and should change under the pressure of globalization. HiiL also focus on the transforming role of international actors as a consequence of globalization.  With its Law of the Future Conferences, Hiil aims to bridge the gap between practice and academia.  The fourth HiiL Law of the Future Conference 2011 will focus on the Law of the Future in general: how will law and the legal sector develop in the 21st century?

Call for Papers:

The Hague Institute for the Internationalisation of Law (HiiL) invites young scholars and graduate students to enter into the “HiiL Law of the Future Young Talent Essay Competition” by submitting original, scholarly written essays on how they think law will look like in 20-30 years.

Please note that while the object of study is “law”, the prism through which it is looked at can be legal, political, economic,
or social. The essay should attempt to answer the following:

“What do you see as the most significant challenges for the development of the law (within one or more of the tracks mentioned above and/or in relation to other tracks)? What developments are we likely to see in the coming two to three decades? What do those developments mean for national legal systems as a whole?”
