Call for Abstracts: Comparative Law Perspectives on the Future of Constitutional Government in the Global World Order, AALS, September 1, 2023

September 1

The Section on Comparative Law invites submissions for the Section’s Main Program to be held at the 2024 Annual Meeting of the Association of the American Law Schools (AALS), on January 3-6, 2024, in Washington, D.C.

This year’s program is entitled Comparative Law Perspectives on the Future of Constitutional Government in the Global World Order.  The forces of globalization continue to challenge the relationship between domestic constitutional regimes and the planetary imperatives of global world order. The organizers invite papers articulating comparative perspectives on (1) the relationship between domestic constitutional law regimes and the processes and pressures of globalization, whether these pressures manifest through the activities of global criminal networks, transnational populist mobilizations, transnational investment and extraction practices or otherwise;  (2) the way domestic constitutional regimes internalize or rationalize their repudiation of international human rights norms, whether through judicial interpretation, legislative enactments or executive in/action; or (3) the way international organizations and normative regimes promote or fail to promote the progressive development of domestic constitutional law regimes to deal with planetary challenges.


The call for papers for this year’s program is intentionally broadly pled in order to invite a wide range of submissions.  Priority will be given to submissions by members of the Comparative Law Section, but remember it is super easy to join the Section!


Interested faculty should submit an abstract no longer than 500 words to the Section Chair, Professor Elizabeth M. Iglesias atiglesias@law.miami.edu no later than 5:00 p.m. EST on Friday, September 1st , 2023. Please indicate “2024 AALS Comparative Law Main Program Abstract” both in the subject line of your email and at the top of your abstract. Final drafts of the paper should be submitted as above, no later than 5:00pm EST on Friday, December 1, 2023.

Members of the Executive Committee, as designated by the Chair, will select the participants. The Section is committed to adhering to all AALS policies in its selection process.
