Papers placing Irish law in comparative perspective are especially encouraged, but any topic in comparative or legal systems may be proposed: Private and Public Law, Criminal Law and Criminal Justice, Taxation, Legal Education, Legal History, etc. Research in the area of Law and Language and Translation will be considered with interest. Papers on European or International law will also be considered.

The primary objective of the Irish Society of Comparative Law is to encourage the comparative study of law and legal systems. Students fully registered for a masters in law, or law-related area (LL.M, MA) are therefore encouraged to submit papers, and a special ISCL Young Researcher Prize will be awarded to the best paper delivered by a student in this category.

Proposal should be short (250 words) and sent to b.sage@ucc.ie.

The deadline for receipt of proposals is Tuesday 3rd January 2012. You do not have to be a member of the ISCL to propose a paper.

The Annual General Meeting and first plenary address by Dr Simone Glanert, University of Kent, will take place on Friday 2nd March. Conference sessions, the second plenary address (speaker TBC) and conference dinner will take place on Saturday 3rd March. Registration forms and additional information will be available shortly.

The Irish Society of Comparative Law was established in June 2008 and is recognised by the International Academy of Comparative Law. The ISCL is open to those interested in Irish and comparative law. Its purpose is to encourage the comparative study of law and legal systems and to seek affiliation with individuals and organisations with complimentary aims. Queries should be directed to the Secretary of the Society, Dr Bénédicte Sage-Fuller, Faculty of Law, University College Cork, at b.sage@ucc.ie.
