eingestellt von hillerZuletzt verändert: 12.06.2007 16:32

The Graduate Student Activities (GSA), Building Dialogue in Sociolegal Studies, will be held Friday July 27, 2007, during the “free period” at the International Conference, Law and Society in the 21st Century at Humboldt University, Berlin, Germany.

All graduate students who are participating in the general conference are also invited to join the planned GSA events. Sign up for the GSA will be on the meeting registration form and will require payment of a nominal fee ($5 USD).

The program will consist of panel presentations, seminar sessions, and informal discussions designed to provide a forum for networking with faculty who write in the field, and to promote dialogue among graduate students and faculty participants about students' individual research projects.
