Doctoral Scholarship Conference Will Be Held December 4–5

The Fifth Annual Doctoral Scholarship Conference will be held at Yale Law School on December 4 and 5, 2015. The conference provides a platform for doctoral students and recent graduates to present, share, and debate scholarly work. "It is a marvelous opportunity for doctoral candidates from around the world to discuss their research and build a global network of young scholars," explains Jaap Baaij, a J.S.D. candidate at Yale Law School and a member of the conference’s Organizing Committee.

This year, 32 authors from 20 academic institutions around the world will present their work. Also included in the two-day event will be a panel discussion on doctoral scholarship with Issa Kohler-Hausmann, Associate Professor of Law and Associate Professor of Sociology; Tom Tyler, Macklin Fleming Professor of Law and Professor of Psychology; and Taisu Zhang, Irving S. Ribicoff Visiting Associate Professor of Law. Daniel Markovits, Guido Calabresi Professor of Law, will deliver a keynote address.

Advance registration is required for all attendees. For more information, please email or visit the conference website.
