The Law and Society Association at Stanford (LSAS) at Stanford Law School is pleased to announce its Seventh Conference for Junior Researchers. After a long pandemic break, LSAS resumes its activities by reviving an international space of discussions and networking for young scholars. This one-day conference provides a forum for junior researchers to share their current research projects on law and society and receive input from faculty and other participants. The conference will also feature a keynote address by an internationally renowned scholar.
The seventh edition of the Conference for Junior Researchers will explore “the role of courts, litigation, and other legal institutions in an age of social conflict.” We welcome topics that touch on the impact and relevance of legal institutions in shaping social movements; the functioning and malfunctioning of these institutions in the light of social conflict; the express and symbolic roles of legal institutions in mediating social conflict; and many other topics that are relevant to the general theme.
