ATLAS 2013 AGORA at The National University of Singapore, Singapore
16 - 27 June 2013
Melbourne Law School is proud to be a founding member of the association of Transnational Law Schools (ATLAS) as part of our ongoing commitment to foster outstanding researchers and research degrees of international relevance. ATLAS is a consortium of law schools from around the world dedicated to the intellectual formation of highly talented doctoral students and fostering reflection and research on issues broadly related, but not limited, to comparative legal and regulatory responses to various forces of globalization, international governance challenges and the evolution of transnational law.
Each year PhD students at Melbourne Law School have the opportunity to participate in an international symposium hosted by ATLAS. The symposium, called the Agora, features Dissertation Research Seminars; General Courses (with participants being required to choose one); Methodology Workshops; Occasional Seminars; Informal Discussion Evenings. The focus of the substantive presentations is on international, transnational and comparative law (both public and private). The program also includes a Distinguished ATLAS Lecture series, with leading academics or policy-makers delivering major lectures on topics tying into ATLAS themes. Participants have a chance to formally present and receive feedback on their own work and to also engage in informal discussions with their peers from around the world.
The 2013 Symposium
In 2013 the Agora will be hosted by the National University of Singapore, Singapore between 16-27 June. This is a unique opportunity for the best PhD students from some of the world's elite universities to meet, receive critical feedback on their work, and to attend lectures by leading legal scholars.
