Doctoral Scholarship Conference to be held November 9–10
The Eighth Annual Doctoral Scholarship Conference will be held at Yale Law School on November 9 and 10, 2018. The conference provides a platform for doctoral students and recent graduates to present, share, and debate scholarly work.
“It is an occasion for doctoral students and early-stage scholars from all around the world to participate in meaningful academic discussions about their research, as well as to engage in critical thinking by commenting and discussing the work of other colleagues. The conference is also an opportunity for creating a global network of emerging scholars,” explains Fernando Bracaccini, a J.S.D. candidate at Yale Law School and a member of the conference’s Organizing Committee.
This year, 34 authors from 24 academic institutions around the world will present their work to four parallel workshops: “Constitutional Law,” “Incentives and Social Goals,” “International Law,” and “Law, Politics, Theory.”
Samuel Moyn, Professor of Law at Yale Law School and Professor of History at Yale University, will deliver a keynote address. Also included in the two-day event will be independent discussions led respectively in each workshop by Jack Balkin, Knight Professor of Constitutional Law and the First Amendment, Ian Ayres, William K. Townsend Professor of Law, Tyler Pratt, Assistant Professor of Political Science at Yale, and Paul Kahn, Robert W. Winner Professor of Law and the Humanities.
The Doctoral Scholarship Conference is sponsored by the Graduate Programs Office at Yale Law School.
