Globalization and the law: the next twenty years

published in 2012 by Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies

The Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies‘ symposium conference, “Globalization and Law: The Next Twenty Years,” was held on April 5-6, 2012, at the Indiana University Maurer School of Law in Bloomington, Indiana. This Symposium celebrated the twentieth anniversary of the journal. In recognition of this landmark, we planned an agenda-setting conference focused on law in the broadest sense as a site where globalization takes aspirational and institutional form, encounters critique and contestation, and shapes the practice of law as both academic discipline and professional art.

 IJGLS was the first journal specifically dedicated to globalization and law. Recognizing that the globalization of law was an emergent field as we established the journal, we made special provision for new scholars in the form of a peer-reviewed journal – hence our dual editorial boards of students and faculty.
