ARTICLE: Indigenous Land Claims in Europe

mar, 2014-05-13 04:20

The article "Indigenous Land Claims in Europe"   by Ghislain Otis and Aurelie Laurent in Indigenous Nations & Peoples Law eJournal is now available on SSRN.This study examines the potential impact of recent developments in international human rights law relating to indigenous land claims on the protection of property under the European Convention on Human Rights. In a departure from colonial law the authors show how the doctrine of ancestral indigenous land title has recently been incorporated into international human rights law. This development, however, has yet to occur within the regime of the European Convention. The authors argue that the new decolonized approach to property can and should be adopted by the European Court of Human rights in its interpretation of Article 1 of Protocol No. 1 of the European Convention.

ARTICLE: Licari on Gény

lun, 2014-05-12 09:53

Our good friend François-Xavier Licari (Université de Lorraine) has posted his 'François Gény in Louisiana' on SSRN at http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2432634:


In his book "François Gény and Modern Jurisprudence" (LSU Press, 1978), Jaro Mayda wrote (p.69): "The important point…is that, despite the art represented by the current literature, the pragmatic temper of America and of its mixed jurisdictions, such as Louisiana, may well be the environment that will send Gény’s themes toward their integration into a rational, modern jurisprudence". This paper tells the story of the realization of this scholarly prophesy. It identifies sociological, historical and cultural factors that contributed to Louisiana's unique reception of the "free objective search for a rule" as set forth in François Gény's manifesto, "Méthode d'interprétation et sources en droit privé positif". It also studies expressions of such successful reception, analyzing some leading cases of the Louisiana Supreme Court.

The article originally appeared in the Journal of Civil Law Studies here.

PROGRAMMES: LLM in History and Philosophy of Law

lun, 2014-05-12 08:23
Applications are now open for the LLM by Research in History and Philosophy of Law at the University of Edinburgh. The degree:
builds on the Law School’s international reputation in Legal History and Philosophy of Law to offer an advanced training in legal history and legal theory. Our goal is to develop the next generation of leading legal historians and legal theorists through a combined programme of teaching and research.

The programme is designed to promote cross-fertilization between the fields of Legal History and Philosophy of Law, while allowing students to focus on the areas that interest them the most. Certain courses (such as Traditions of Legal Enquiry) expressly explore the relations between research in Legal History and research in Legal Philosophy, while others focus on more discrete areas of legal enquiry. Students are encouraged to choose (under the guidance of the programme director) specialised optional courses and a dissertation topic that reflect their interests, under the supervision of a member of School.
More information on the LLM may be found here.
Recommended. SPD

BOOK: Braverman, Blomley, Delaney, Kedar on Legal Geography

lun, 2014-05-12 08:04
Stanford University Press has announced the publication of Irus Braverman, Nicholas Blomley, David Delaney, and Alexandre Kedar (eds), The Expanding Spaces of LawA Timely Legal Geography:The Expanding Spaces of Law presents readers with cutting-edge scholarship on legal geography and pushes the current boundaries of the field, investigating new questions and reinvigorating previous modes of inquiry. 
Legal geography has contributed a great deal to understanding the many relationships between space and law. Earlier work has explored space that is static, such as the law's interaction with concepts of the home, public space, prison, restrooms, camps, territories, and nation states. But the past few years have seen an emphasis on analyzing the dynamic workings of space, and the understanding of space in various new ways. The Expanding Spaces of Law asks readers to consider what legal geography would look like if we were to give more prominence to conceptions of space as process, space as event, or space as situation or relationship. Questions of space and time are often implicit in the work of legal geographers, and this book seeks to bring these questions to the fore.
The Expanding Spaces of Law brings together some of the most prominent names in the field, and includes new voices in the field from around the world to introduce provocative and exciting research in legal geography.
Highly recommended. SPD

CONFERENCE: De-juridification: Appearance and Disappearance of Law at a Time of Crisis

lun, 2014-05-05 06:57
The Annual Conference of the IVR International Association of Legal and Social Philosophy, UK Branch
The London School of Economics and Political Science
25-26 October 2014on
De-juridification: Appearance and Disappearance of Law at a Time of Crisis
It was not too long ago that many legal philosophers and sociologists were expressing deep concerns about juridification, i.e. law’s expansion as a mode of governance and its distorting effects on social relations. 
Now, however, under conditions of globalisation and in the midst of a global crisis, there are several indications that the trend of juridification is being reversed, that law is subsiding and giving way to other modes of governance. With governments offloading many of their central tasks to civil society, with international economic agencies exercising normative authority, with people seemingly recognising each other more as economic actors than as legal subjects, and with the interpretation of indeterminate laws being carried out not by courts but by actual power-holders, to mention only very few examples, it seems appropriate to ask questions regarding a process of de-juridification which seems to be afoot. 
The main aim of the conference is to explore various aspects of de-juridification. Contributions are invited from legal philosophy, socio-legal theory, legal anthropology, and other law-related disciplines to tackle questions such as the following: Is a process of de-juridification underway? In which contexts does law recede? What replaces it and how? Does less law mean more or less politics? Does it entail a shift in the meaning of legitimacy? 
Keynote speakers: Professor Antje Wiener (Hamburg) and Professor Peer Zumbansen (Osgoode Hall). 

Abstracts of up to 200 words should be sent to the treasurer of the UK IVR executive, Dr Emmanuel Melissaris (e.melissaris@lse.ac.uk), by 1 July 2014. 

Full rate: £50 - UK IVR members: £40 - Students/unemployed: £30

CALL FOR PAPERS: IIJSL/RISJ Special Issue - Marginalised Bodies (Re)imagining the Law

lun, 2014-05-05 06:23
When the law regulates, it also marginalises. Indigenous people, the GLBTI community, women, children, the homeless and others are all victimised by the force of this regulation. For many people belonging to these communities, the law has left them with a sense of abandonment – the law does not recognise the realities that they live out on a day to day basis. In so doing, sites of contest are opened up in which marginalised bodies attempt to challenge law makers and law enforcers. Semiotics allows us useful methods for exploring these interactions. For instance, the signs of both groups (literal and metaphorical), the language employed by groups (how they complement and contrast each other in differing legal and social realities) and acts deterrence and defiance are all possible areas of inquiry. This issue draws attention to the many different ways marginalised groups attempt to redress or ‘(re)imagine’ the law. This special issue for the International Journal for the Semiotics of Law invites high quality contributions from scholars of all disciplines that undertake rhetorical, hermeneutic, sociolinguistic, discourse, aesthetic or semiotic analyses of the law and marginalised and/or disadvantaged groups. Of particular interest are papers discussing indigenous rights, homeless rights, rights of women and children rights, GLBTI rights, refugee and asylum seeker rights and the intersections between law and philosophy, visual arts, music, poetry and literature. Submissions to be made in English only.

Guest Editor: Ben Hightower (Legal Intersections Research Centre, University of Wollongong, Australia) Submissions: send paper proposal (max. 400 words) by *15 July 2014* to bh45@uowmail.edu.au Selection: selected authors will be invited by 15 August 2014 to submit a full paper Final submissions: papers (max. 9,000 words) to be sent by 15 March 2015 for double-blind peer review

JOURNAL/SYMPOSIUM: The German Law Journal (New) and Privacy and Power - A Transatlantic Dialogue in the Shadow of the NSA

lun, 2014-05-05 06:22
The editors of the German Law Journal have written the following:
This is the third issue in volume fifteen. After kicking-off 2014 with two special issues [Plea Bargains in Germanyand OMT Decision of the BVerfG], we return in this issue to our regular “coverage of developments in German, European and International Jurisprudence.” For the most part this rich selection of articles and commentary came to us as unsolicited submissions that were selected for publication after the Editorial Board’s rigorous review.
It is a challenging, invigorating and illuminating slate of contributions.

Francesco de Ceccoconsiders the relationship between the European Union’s fundamental freedoms and fundamental rights. In a related contribution, Sarah Lambrecht offers valued insight into the ongoing negotiation between the Strasbourg system and the push to replace the Human Rights Act with a Bill of Rights in the UK. Danny Nicol’s article is well-matched with Lambrecht’s. He examines “political herding” in the UK. This, according to Nicol, is one of the social-psychological forces that drive the kind of constitutional change that Lambrecht documents. Anne-Marie Zell’s article brings this issue’s effort back to the tension between EU law and domestic rights. She explores the sensationally relevant theme of data protection in the European and German regimes. Two book reviews and an ECJ case-note fill-out this issue’s “developments” section.
As ever, we hope you will enjoy reading this collection and that it will inspire you to offer the German Law Journal your work for publication. Submit special issue proposals, articles, commentary, case-notes, reviews and reports at: GLJ-Submit@wlu.edu. The Journalenjoys a wide readership around the world and continues to demonstrate its ability to stir debate and impact developments in the law with an impressive “impact factor” score and the citations it attracts. We congratulate Vestert Borger, for example, whose article “The ESM and the European Court’s Predicament in Pringle” (14 German Law Journal 113 (2013)) was cited by the Federal Constitutional Court in its January OMT Decision (para. 85).
Let us once again draw your attention to the Call-for-Papers “Europe and the Lost Generation.” We hope to attract a compelling mix of commentary and reflection on the enduring effects—especially for the project of European integration—of the economic hardship unleashed by the last several years of monetary and debt crises in Europe. The deadline for submissions has been extended to 15 June 2014.

We are also pleased to announce, in conjunction with the Centre for Security and Societyat the University of Freiburg, plans for a two-day symposium under the title “Privacy and Power: A Transatlantic Dialogue in the Shadow of the NSA.” The event will be held in Freiburg on 8-9 July 2014 and will feature commentary and scholarly presentations from a number of European and American experts in the fields of security and the legal protection of liberty.

BOOK: Coyle on Modern Jurisprudence

lun, 2014-05-05 06:01
Hart Publishing has just published Sean Coyle's Modern Jurisprudence: A Philosophical Guide:


This book provides a concise and accessible guide to modern jurisprudence, offering an examination of the major theories and systematic discussion of themes such as legality and justice. It gives readers a better understanding of the rival viewpoints by exploring the historical developments which give modern thinking its distinctive shape, and placing law in its political context. A key feature of the book is that readers are not simply presented with opposing theories, but are guided through the rival standpoints on the basis of a coherent line of reflection from which an overall sense of the subject can be gained. Chapters on Hart, Fuller, Rawls, Dworkin and Finnis take the reader systematically through the terrain of modern legal philosophy, tracing the issues back to fundamental questions of philosophy, and indicating lines of criticism that build to a fresh and original perspective on the subject.

Like other Hart titles, our readers receive a 20% discount on the book. See here for details.

ARTICLE: Prof. Katia Fach Gòmez onWhy Does Legal English Sound Like Gibberish To Many Spanish Law Students?

sam, 2014-05-03 06:18
We are pleased to inform you about the new article of Prof. Katia Fach Gòmez from University of Saragoza









Abstract:

Legal English is unfortunately still a rare bird in law faculties in public universities in Spain. However, a command of legal English — the generic term used in this article to refer to both a specific legal subject taught in English and an instrumental “English for Specific Purposes” (ESP) subject in the legal sphere — is one of the assets that the voracious labor market demands of even recent graduates. This article is a personal reflection on the multiple dysfunctional factors in Spain that, together, prevent this gap from closing as quickly and completely as would be desirable. My article also shows that other, more auspicious developments in the legal English teaching and learning field are starting to take root in Spain and that there are also reasons for believing that Spanish lawyers can be relied on to take the lead in the long overdue “degibberization” of legal English.

CONFERENCE: Sales Law in the Region of the Caucasus and Central Asia

mer, 2014-04-30 14:52
Institute of East European Law of the University of Kiel and Al-Farabi Kazakh National University have announced the conference Sales Law in the Region of the Caucasus and Central Asia: between Divergence and Harmonizationin Almaty, Kazakhstan 23-24 May 2014.
Target group: legal researchers and practitioners, governmental officials, who deal with international and national regulation of international trade (private law aspects) in the region of the Caucasus and Central Asia.
Conference language: English and Russian with simultaneous translation.
Topics: The Conference will deal on a comparative basis with the sales law in the region of the Caucasus and Central Asia, with particular accent on regulation of international sales contracts. Sales law of all countries besides Georgia base on the CIS Model Civil Code. In the recent 20 years the sales laws of the countries of the region were amended many times. The reforms were strongly influenced by international legal frameworks and foreign, in particular German, legislation. But these reforms were not harmonized between each other. Today we have quite different legal framework for the sales law. As the result the countries of the region approaching step-by-step to the international trends, are drifting more and more from each other. The Conference is targeting to shed light to this interesting development and compare it to the developments in the EU, in particular to establishment of the Common European Sales law. The Conference focuses on several aspects: the structure of the Sales Law, its development and the role of international organizations and foreign technical aid organizations, not individually negotiated terms, conflict of laws rules of the countries of the region applicable to the international sales contracts, transport contracts and contracts on sales of hydrocarbons, which are very important for the countries of the region.
