Chair: Ruti Teitel, Ernst C. Stiefel Professor of Comparative Law
First established in Spring 2002, this discussion group explores globalism, conflict, and the rule of law from a comparative perspective. Distinguished presenters come from schools in New York and elsewhere, and discussions—attended by faculty from inside and outside New York Law School—explore issues in comparative tort law and comparative constitutional law, as well as in the politics of crime, international justice, and the meaning of civil society.
In the Spring semester, the Global Law and Justice Colloquium becomes a course open to students. Click here for the Spring 2012 schedule.
