The Toronto Group (TG) is a collaboration between graduate students at Osgoode Hall Law School and the Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto. TG aims to create a forum for graduate students to disseminate their research and engage with a broad international community of emerging scholars. TG’s areas of focus include legal, social, and political theory, public and private international law, and constitutional law and politics.
TG’s signature event is our annual conference, held in Toronto, Ontario. Our upcoming conference will be held on May 01 and May 02, 2015 at University of Toronto, in Toronto Ontario. We are currently accepting abstracts for our 2015 conference. The theme of the conference is “Law Beyond the State”.
The thematic focus of this year’s conference is “Law Beyond the State”.
Participants are invited to conceptualize, criticize and examine the status of law from various perspectives. While much of Western legal thought has conceptualized the existence and operation of law as arising from a state paradigm, this year’s theme provides participants an opportunity to examine instances of law that is not dependent on the state. Please refer to the attached call for abstracts for complete details on the Call for Proposals.
