NOTICE: Law & History Collaborative Research Network (Seattle, 28-31 May 2015)

jeu, 2014-06-26 08:07

Greetings from the Law & History Collaborative Research Network, part of the Law & Society Association (www.lawandsociety.org/crn.html).
We have just come from the Law and Society Association annual meeting in Minneapolis, where we were thrilled with the success of our first year as a Collaborative Research Network.  Creating a CRN, we think, significantly improved the discussion of legal history at LSA.  We were able to better coordinate and publicize legal history panels and create new opportunities to interact scholars from other fields.  But we hope that this is just the beginning.  With more participation, we believe next year will be even better, and we invite you to join us.

What is the Law & History CRN?
The Law & History CRN brings together scholars interested in legal history, both American and non-American, of any time period from contemporary to ancient.  We welcome a broad array of scholarly interests and methodological approaches. The Law and Society Movement has long welcomed legal historians and encouraged legal history, and our CRN intends to further foster this relationship. We seek to encourage presentation of historical legal work at the Law and Society’s Association’s annual meeting, and to create opportunities for interdisciplinary and cross-generational conversations.

What does it mean to join the Law & History CRN?
It means you will be welcomed into a network of scholars interested in participating in the historical examination of the law at the Law and Society Association annual meeting and beyond.  In practical terms, joining the CRN means joining a listserv (administered via Google Groups) that we use to alert members of the LSA’s call for papers, organize panels, and communicate about panels of interest for scholars interested in law and history at LSA.  We will also on rare occasions send out other announcements relevant to legal history.

The next Law & Society Association meeting will be held May 28-31 in Seattle, Washington. The call for papers should be out soon, and the deadline for submitting papers and panels will be in the fall of 2014, so it's not to early to start thinking about proposals.

What are the advantages of joining the Law & History CRN?
We see our main contribution as encouraging connections among a broad range of scholars and drawing attention to the historical legal research presented at the annual conference. More specifically, we’re interested in putting together and publicizing legal history panels at the LSA annual meeting. If you have a paper you’d like to present, you can use the listserv to find other potential panelists; we can also use our access to the LSA website to help connect you with other relevant paper submissions. And if you’re planning a panel that seems relevant to legal historians, please let us know so that we can list it as a CRN panel (if you’re interested) and publicize it among our members.  Further, we can make connections with other CRNs, further increasing the potential audience for each panel. This year (our first year as a CRN) we had five panels designated as CRN panels, two of which were co-listed with other CRNs. Finally, the administrative advantage of affiliating your paper/panel with a CRN is that the CRN can request that up to four of CRN-affiliated panels be scheduled at different times to avoid conflicts.

Do I need to be a member of LSA to join the Law & History CRN?
No. We strongly encourage everyone who is presenting at LSA to also become a member, but all we’re asking you to do right now is sign up for the email announcements.

I’m not a legal historian/I’m not a historian – can I join?
Absolutely. LSA is about drawing connections across fields and methods. If you’re interested in legal history, or you’re using historical materials, or you’re looking to the past, and you’d like to present on a panel with other people interested in historical sources/methods/questions, we’d love to have you.

I’m already a member of the American Society for Legal History – why should I also attend LSA?
We are all enthusiastic ASLH participants, but the LSA annual meeting differs in a few important ways. First, it’s a large interdisciplinary meeting with substantial representation from sociology, political science, anthropology, economics, and other fields. It can thus be a great place to make connections, put together panels across disciplinary lines, and participate in interdisciplinary conversations. Second, since LSA traditionally accepts all paper and panel submissions, it provides a welcoming place for all scholars, especially graduate students who may find it difficult to get on the program at smaller conferences.  And third, we want to exchange ideas with scholars interested in legal history more than once a year.

How do I join?
Send an email with your contact information to any or all of us and we will make sure you are included.

NOTICE: new international Master between Italy (Roma Tre University) and France (EHESS/Paris 1) (Rome/Paris 2014-2016)

jeu, 2014-06-26 07:58

WHAT:  new international MASTER on Comparative Law (Droit et normativités comparées - Diritto e normatività comparate) between Italy (Roma Tre University) and France (EHESS/Paris 1)
WHERE: Italy: Roma Tre University, Law Department - France: Ehess, Cenj and University of Paris 1, Sorbonne
WHEN: 2014-2015 /2015-2016
The deadline is Tuesday, 15 July 2014
All information here:CENJ: http://cenj.ehess.fr/index.php?431Roma Tre University: http://master.giur.uniroma3.it/offerta-20142015/master-20142015-livello/diritto-normativita-comparate/ HESAM: http://www.hesam.eu/blog/2014/05/14/master-droit-et-normativites-comparees-parcours-de-specialisation-de-la-mention-etudes-politiques/
L’EHESS, l’Université Paris 1 et l’université de Roma Tre avec le soutien de heSam Université coopèrent pour créer un master international « Droit et normativités comparées ». L’objectif de cette nouvelle formation pédagogique est de faire dialoguer le droit avec d’autres sources de normativité, sans lui reconnaître la position hégémonique que les facultés juridiques revendiquent habituellement. Le présupposé de cette comparaison fructueuse entre normativités repose sur la conviction que chaque savoir ne peut pas renoncer à son propre patrimoine technique : le droit, l’économie, la religion, la science, la technologie, tout comme la sociologie, l’anthropologie et la philosophie élaborent leurs propres critères réglementaires et c’est sur ce terrain que le droit doit penser sa propre façon de construire le fait social. C’est la raison pour laquelle nous préférons parler de normativités, car chaque société développe ses propres besoins normatifs en s’appuyant à la fois sur l’outillage technique et formalisé du droit et sur les capacités et les instruments de régulation élaborés au sein des différents contextes sociaux et culturels. Aujourd’hui force est de constater que, loin d’être une discipline étrangère, le droit est désormais intimement lié aux sciences sociales. II paraît ainsi nécessaire de combler une lacune objective de l’offre pédagogique dans ce domaine. L’objectif étant d’assurer une formation complète sur quatre semestres (M1 et M2), pendant la première année (M1) les étudiants suivront les cours et les séminaires à Rome, alors que la seconde année (M2) ils séjourneront à Paris. Suite à ce programme de mobilité les compétences ainsi acquises peuvent être utilisées prioritairement dans le monde de la recherche mais aussi dans des contextes professionnels (secteur privé, ONG, institutions nationales et internationales). 
Pour résumer, ce master « Droit et normativités comparées » se propose les buts suivants :► familiariser une classe de jeunes étudiants provenant du droit et des sciences humaines et sociales avec les différences épistémologiques fondamentales entre ces regroupements disciplinaires ;► introduire les étudiants aux enjeux contemporains et historiques qui caractérisent la vie du droit dans son rapport avec les sciences humaines et sociales ;► donner aux étudiants une formation intellectuelle spécialisée qui les rende capables de déployer – à une échelle éventuellement internationale – une connaissance critique des normativités qui stratifient la vie sociale ;► fournir aux étudiants de formation non juridique la possibilité d’élargir leurs connaissances par l’acquisition de compétences dans le domaine des normativités juridiques et, réciproquement, fournir aux étudiants juristes, en fin de leur cursus technique, une meilleure maîtrise des normativités non juridiques, en tenant compte des différentes cultures qui composent le monde dit global.

CONFERENCE: "Japanese Law: History, Reception and Adaptation/Influence", (Edinburgh, 20 June 2014)

jeu, 2014-06-19 18:10

WHAT: Japanese Law: History, Reception and Adaptation/Influence, Conference

WHERE: University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Law School, Lee and Elder Rooms, Old College

WHEN: 20 June 2014, 9 am - 5 pm

all information here

Japanese law is said to have undergone drastic change through the adaptation of Western law in the second half of the nineteenth century. Many scholars now believe that this ‘westernised’ Japanese law significantly influenced the legal systems of other Asian countries, including Korea, China, and Thailand. This one-day seminar will assess the nature of this transformation of Japanese law that took place amid intense globalisation of the nineteenth century. Among the questions to be considered are the aspects of Japanese law that changed as the result of the reception; the processes of this adaptation and its main consequences, domestic and international.The seminar will bring together four specialists in Japanese law and legal history to address these questions, and will begin with a talk by Professor John W. Cairns, who will discuss legal transplants and colonialism in the nineteenth century. Hiroshi Oda, Sir Ernest Satow Professor of Japanese Law at University College London and the author of Japanese Law (now a standard textbook), will provide a general overview of Japanese law, its history and evolution, emphasising its comparative and commercial aspects.[1] Marie Seong-Hak Kim, in her recent book Law and Custom in Korea, claims that the idea of custom as a source of law barely existed in East Asia prior to the nineteenth century and it was the Japanese jurists who absorbed the idea from Western jurisprudence and disseminated it throughout East Asia as colonial agents. Kim will elaborate on this claim. Hiromi Sasamoto-Collins, who has examined the difficult birth of modern constitutionalism in Japan in her book, Power and Dissent in Imperial Japan, will focus on Japan’s first western-style Criminal Code of 1880, and assess exactly how the Japanese codifiers adopted legal principles that appeared to be so radically dissimilar to traditional Japanese legal thought. Matthias Zachmann, the author of China and Japan in the Late Meiji Period and an expert on East Asian relations and international law, will discuss how the Japanese understood and misunderstood the notion of international law in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and what were the consequences of such (mis)conceptions.
            In short, the seminar will investigate the question of reception and adaptation in three major areas, international law, and the civil and criminal codes, in the Japanese context. Such perspectives remain essential for the understanding of contemporary Japanese law, as the Japanese legal system remains more or less grounded in the legal reforms of the Meiji period (1868–1912) despite significant later modifications. Such reforms, in turn, then went on to influence the legal systems of other countries in Asia.             Accordingly the theme of Japanese adaptation has large implications for studies of legal and cultural transmission and transmutation. The nineteenth century saw the large-scale dissemination of Western ideas and institutional arrangements across the globe. Legal transplantation was part of this global convergence. And yet extra-legal cultural factors specific to each region or country also intervened in this process. Thus, if some principles and practices survive cultural barriers and take root in a different cultural setting, why and how does this happen? The question may help us to better understand the phenomena of legal convergence and differentiation that continue to this day. The seminar will focus on the Japanese experience, but we hope it will open up debate on the general phenomenon of legal transmission.     
Practical Information:The workshop will take place in the Lee and Elder Rooms in Old College on South Bridge. These rooms may be accessed through the glass doors on the Registry side of Old College. We shall convene there for 9 am. The rooms are not equipped with AV equipment so if you are planning to use a presentation or something similar, please email these to Dr. Sasamoto-Collins no later than a week before the workshop to allow us to make copies. Each speaker has 60 minutes (45 minutes for the talk plus 15 minutes discussion).Programme:9 – 9.15 am:                Dr. Paul du Plessis: Welcome and Contextualisation9.15 – 10.15 am:         Professor John W.

The articles in this issue include:
Geoffrey MacCormack - ‘Agreement’, ‘Contract’ and ‘Debt’ in Early Chinese Law
This paper examines the evidence for the development of a law of contract during the period of the Warring States (481-771 BCE) and the Qin/Han dynasties (221 BCE – 220 CE). From a study of the technical terms found in the context of agreements, in particular zhai (debt), yue (agreement), and quan(document in two parts), the conclusion is drawn that early Chinese law never developed beyond the stage of recognition of a number of distinct types of agreement to which legal consequences were attached. No ‘law of contract’, comparable to that developed in Rome at roughly the same epoch, emerged from these particularities. The main reason for the difference between Rome and China, it is suggested, lay in the lack of emergence in China of a class of private lawyer resembling the Roman jurists.
Marcel Senn -  ‘Law and Authority’: A Political and Legal Paradigm by Thomas Hobbes and its Different Receptions in the USA, Canada, Britain and Germany since 1989
Thomas Hobbes’ Leviathan is one of the few grand oeuvres representing the code of pre-modern political power. This code often legitimates our present understanding of law and state. Therefore it is necessary to discover the ‘socialisation’ of the interpreters – that is the impact of social, cognitive interests within scientific interpretations of law – so as to improve our understanding in a more differentiated way. The author demonstrates this in relation to three different discourses on Leviathan conducted in North America, Britain and Germany during the last twenty-five years. He thereby shows how the ‘socialisation’ of the interpreters is manifest in these particular discourses, and what this means to a reader’s critical comprehension when he or she tries to understand an opus such as Leviathan by merely reading secondary literature.
Johannes W Flume - Law and Commerce: The Evolution of Codified Business Law in Europe
This paper tracks the evolution of the codification of commercial law and company law, also known as business law. Although the literature on codification in general is vast, little attention has been dedicated to the importance of business law in this context despite the first major moves towards codification being achieved in this field. A comparative and historical survey of the codification of business law in France, England and Germany illustrates how the European legal landscape has been affected by the process of casting the law in statutory form. Indeed, regardless of the commonly-held misconception that there is ‘a’ commercial code, the legislative responses to the needs of commerce have varied widely from country to country, for while company law was always in focus, the rest of the corpus differs substantially. The code de commerce of 1807 was primarily of a procedural nature, while the German commercial code of 1863 created its own ‘private law cosmos’ and the late English codes adopted yet another, very selective, strategy. The aim of this comparative study is to understand the foundations of the legal institutions of the nineteenth century which still form the basis of our current statutes. This in turn allows some predictions for likely future developments to be made.
Tatiana Borisova and Jukka Siro - Law between Revolution and Tradition: Russian and Finnish Revolutionary Legal Acts, 1917–18
This article compares the legislative practices of two socialist revolutions in Russia (the Bolshevik revolution) and Finland in late 1917 and in 1918. Notwithstanding the considerable differences in the social, political and economic conditions in Finland and Russia, the revolutionaries in both countries had similar legislative strategies. The revolutionary legislative policies had the same ends: to secure the success of the revolutions, and, eventually, to build a new and better society. This article seeks to demonstrate the history of revolutionary law-making as a juncture of two main tendencies: the emergence of new ‘revolutionary’ features of legislative politics and the preservation of pre-revolutionary law.
We argue that the pre-revolutionary practices of law-making on which the revolutionaries relied shaped their strategies and, to some extent, the criteria by which they judged the ultimate success of their revolutions. We argue that the performative effect of revolutionary slogans should be perceived, at least in part, as a continuity of pre-revolutionary legal and administrative practices. Our comparative analysis of revolutionary law-making provides a more complex understanding of the role of revolutions in modern state empowerment.

SCHOLARSHIP: PhD Studentship - The History of Ideas about Law and Society in a Global Context

ven, 2014-06-06 09:54
The Centre for Law and Society in a Global Context (CLSGC), part of the School of Law at Queen Mary - University of London:is offering a PhD Studentship to fund a doctoral student to conduct research in the area of the history of ideas about law and society in a global context. The CLSGC would welcome applications for this funding award from applicants whose research proposals outline how they aim to investigate the social context in which such ideas are articulated either by individual jurists or groups of jurists.The research will be conducted at the CLSGC, which was established in the summer of 2013. It is a home for multidisciplinary research into the global dimensions of law and society. At its core, the CLSGC aims to work towards a better theorization of law in its changing social contexts, exploring the challenges posed for this endeavour by law's increasingly important global dimensions. One of the key planks of CLGSC's research program is the historical dimension of the globalisation of law, including the globalisation of ideas about law and society.The studentships are awarded on the basis of academic excellence. The application process for these awards is highly competitive. Shortlisted candidates will be required to attend an interview.For additional information see here or here.
