The AALS Section on Comparative Law is pleased to announce a new Works-in-Progress Program in Comparative Law from 8:30 to 10:30 AM on Friday January 3 at the AALS 2014 Annual Meeting in New York.

This program will bring together junior and senior scholars for a lively discussion of emerging comparative law scholars’ works-in-progress.  We want to thank all of the comparative law scholars who have submitted papers to our call for papers during the fall of 2013. The committee that selected four out of many excellent papers was formed by the members of the AALS Comparative law section: Sudha Setty (Western New England University School of Law), Kristen G. Barnes (University of Akron School of Law) and César F. Rosado Marzán (Chicago-Kent College of Law) in conjunction with the Chair-Elect and the Chair of the Comparative law section.
The session in NYC will be divided in three panels that will last 35 minutes each. Each senior commentator will present and comment on their paper for 15 minutes and then we will have twenty minutes of general discussion for the first two panels. For the third panel we envisage 10 minutes for each commentator and 15 minutes for general discussion.
