Irish Society of Comparative Law Conference

May 30 2016 Posted: 12:32 IST

On May 23rd-24th the School of Law and the Irish Center of Human Rights hosted the 7th Annual Conference of the Irish Society of Comparative Law. It was a gathering of scholars from all over the world (30 countries) discussing meaningfully a variety of topics that are of current interest from a comparative perspective. Professor Mark Tushnet from Harvard Law School was the keynote speaker starting the discussion with a particularly thought-provoking talk on the Boundaries of Comparative Law. The Conference hosted panels on a number of topics of contemporary interest such as Constitutional Responses to Terrorism, the current “Migration Crisis”, the concept of Human Dignity, Comparative Constitutional Law issues, the methodology of Comparative Law more broadly, other topics stemming from private law, criminal law and criminal justice, public law, legal education and international law. The discussions were most engaging and fruitful. Sincerest thanks to all participants for a lively and memorable event. Organizers of the event were Dr Ekaterina Yahyaoui-Krivenko, Ms Denise Gormley and Dr Ioanna Tourkochoriti.
