October 2006 - Globalization and Law Conference Presented by AICLS, La Trobe Law and University of Western Australia Extension


At the University of Western Australia: October 27/28, 2006

What is the law of the future? Will it be common to all nations? Where is citizenship law headed? Does a global legal order imply cultural conquest? What is the impact of globalisation on human rights? Will multinational corporations really dominate our legal environment?

We are already seeing major shifts in private, criminal, administrative and constitutional law as societies connect across national boundaries. Join leading legal authorities to explore the fundamental issues at the core of the internationalisation of law movement.

This seminar offers a rare opportunity to hear from prominent thinkers around the world as we strive to understand the role of national law in a global society. Compelling anecdotes and case studies will enhance an exceptional range of presentations by distinguished speakers.

We invite a vigorous participation in the debate about globalisation, law and justice and look forward to welcoming visitors to Perth. For travel to and accomodation in Perth visit www.westernaustralia.com
