Call for Participation - Due Date: January 12, 2007


 

1)      Co-sponsored by four other socio-legal associations

 

For the first time, LSA and RCSL will be joined by four other socio-legal associations. Other sponsors of Berlin 2007 are the Socio-Legal Studies Association of the UK (SLSA), the Japanese Association of Sociology of Law (JASL), the Vereinigung fur Rechtssoziologie (VfR), and the Sociology of Law Section of the German Sociological Association. An International Planning Committee, made up of representatives from the six sponsoring organizations, met in 2005 and agreed on goals, dates, procedures and other basic parameters for the Berlin event.

 

2)      Covering all socio-legal studies topics and open to all scholars

 

The Berlin meeting will serve the needs of the members of LSA, RCSL and the other sponsors but will be open to scholars from all over the world. Scholars are encouraged to submit individual papers and organize panels and roundtables. In addition to panels, roundtables and other sessions on all socio-legal studies topics, there will be special theme events designed to identify common issues, take account of comparative work, foster studies of transnational phenomena, and promote future international cooperation. A detailed call for papers with instructions on how to make submissions will be issued in September 2006.

 

3)      Participation by Working Groups, Collaborative Research Networks, and International Research Collaboratives

 

In addition to welcoming all socio-legal topics and individual scholars, the conference will be open to standing research networks including RCSL Working Groups and LSA Collaborative Research Networks. In connection with Berlin 2007, LSA has established the Program on International Research Collaboration (PIRC) to support new multi-national research networks. These International Research Collaboratives  (IRCs) will first convene this summer at the 2006 LSA meeting in Baltimore, Maryland and then present work in progress at the Berlin conference. (For a list of IRCs, click here.) 

 

4)      Organized by a Joint Program Committee

 

The international Program Committee (PC 2007) is co-chaired by Anne Boigeol (RCSL) and David M. Trubek (LSA) and includes representatives of the sponsoring organizations and other scholars from eleven countries. (For a full list of PC2007 Members, click here). The Program Committee is responsible for selecting the theme, preparing the call for papers, commissioning all special events, developing panels and roundtables, and organizing submissions. A group of scholars drawn from Humboldt University and other institutions in and around Berlin serve as the Local Planning Committee.

 

5)      Held in an exciting city

 

The site for the 2007 meeting is the “new Berlin”, a city that has been rebuilt since the fall of the Berlin Wall and has become one of the most exciting spots in Europe for visitors.
