2014 Doctoral Scholarship Conference: Law and Responsibility on November 14–15

Yale Law School will host its 4th Doctoral Scholarship Conference on November 14 and 15, 2014.

This year’s conference sets out to explore the relationship between law and responsibility. The papers presented in the conference will examine the ways in which various modes of responsibility—including the personal, the social, and the civic—manifest themselves in the realms of private and public law, as well as in the domestic and international spheres. The conference will investigate different concepts of responsibility and the ways in which these are engaged with and generated within the law.

The conference brings together a multi-disciplinary group of doctoral students and recent graduates from around the country and the world to discuss their work and exchange ideas—including some of YLS’s own doctoral students.

Arthur Liman Professor of Law Judith Resnik and Allen H. Duffy Class of 1960 Professor of Law John Witt ’99 will deliver keynote addresses.

A complete list of panelists, the schedule, and registration information are available on the conference’s website. Advance registration is required for all attendees. For more information, please email [email protected].

The conference is supported by the Oscar M. Ruebhausen Fund.
