The School of Law, Charles Darwin University, Darwin, Australia will hold its inaugural Transnational Law Research Workshop and Student Showcase on Wednesday 16th March 2016. 

This event brings together academics, students and professionals from our region and globally, to exchange knowledge related to the theme of transnational law. It is part of a programme of events to showcase legal research throughout 2016 from our unique position as a remote and transnational institution, with guest keynote speakers.

Globalization increasingly requires discussion in the context of the emerging and modern theories and practice in transnational law including questions about the nature of law and society, issues of law and state and sources of law and legal authority.

We invite papers on transnational theory and practice brought on by globalization, particularly in the Asia / ASEAN region. We particularly welcome papers on jurisdiction, extradition, transnational organised crime and cross cultural legal harmonisation in the context of actual or potential effects or transboundary moral impacts.

This will be the first time that the School of Law at Charles Darwin University has held such a research event in the top end of Australia at the gateway to Asia. We hope to see papers and discussions on promoting cooperation between Commonwealth and Asian countries. We highly encourage academics and professionals from Asia / ASEAN to participate.

We look forward to welcoming you to the School of Law in Darwin in March 2016 as we move towards transnational cooperation and to highlight the work of our own students and staff.

Please submit your abstracts to Felicity.Gerry@cdu.edu.au by the 20th February 2016.

Selection will be made by the end of February. Registration is free. Attendance and catering are not subsidised. Some consideration can be given to a limited number of online presentations via our live link facilities but attendance in person is encouraged.

Selected papers will have the opportunity to be published in the International Journal 'Issues in Legal Scholarship' with thanks to the Editor-in-Chief Dr Charanjit Singh and De Grutyer. Papers from the proceedings that are considered for publication must follow normal submission guidelines.

Future events will include themes of indigenous justice, health and law and politics and law to be notified in the New Year.
