Doctoral Conference to Be Held November 10–11, 2017

The 7th Annual Yale Law School Doctoral Scholarship Conference will take place on November 10–11, 2017. The conference was founded and is run by Yale Law School doctoral students with the support of the Graduate Programs Office.

Nicholas deB. Katzenbach Professor of Law Reva Siegel will deliver a keynote address. The conference will feature a mix of presentations and works-in-progress from doctoral researchers and recent doctoral graduates from across the United States and around the world, hailing from more than 20 universities. The event will be divided into three parallel working-groups centered around specific topics: International Law; Law, Society, and History; and Law, Politics, and Theory. Each working group’s 10 presenters and up to 5 additional participants will meet over two days to workshop papers.

“The 7th Annual Doctoral conference brings together the next generation of legal scholars to develop, test and refine their research,” says Gordon Silverstein, Assistant Dean for Graduate Programs. “What started as an informal gathering has blossomed into a major annual event and professional milestone for our students and those joining us from across the nation and around the world.”
