Third Annual Younger Comparativists Committee Conference
The Third Annual Younger Comparativists Committee Conference will be held on April 4-5, 2014, at Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon. The conference will begin with an evening reception on Friday, April 4th, and continue with all-day concurrent panels on Saturday, April 5th.
The Younger Comparativists Committee (YCC) hosts an annual global conference for younger scholars in all areas of comparative law, both public and private, at a different law school each year. Younger scholars, defined as faculty and students with fewer than ten years’ teaching experience on a law faculty, were invited to submit an abstract on any subject of public or private comparative law. Abstracts are reviewed by the Program Committee, which then assemble panels from individual submissions.
The YCC awards two prizes at the annual global conference: (1) the Colin B. Picker Prize, named after the founding Chair of the YCC and given to the most meritorious paper written by a graduate student; and (2) the Phanor J. Eder Prize, named after the founding President of the American Society of Comparative Law and given to the most meritorious paper written by a student currently enrolled in a J.D. or LL. B program.
Over 100 scholars are scheduled to participate. Registration is closed at this time.
