Asian Legal History conference

 [We share the following update on the Asian Legal History conference, which is happening later this month. Further information is available here.]

The Transnational Legal History Group of the CUHK LAW’s Centre for Comparative and Transnational Law and the University of Law – Hue University will be jointly organizing a conference on the theme of Asian Legal History at the University of Law – Hue University, Hue, Vietnam, on 24-25 July 2021. Convened by Bui Ngoc Son, Associate Professor of Asian Law at the University of Oxford Faculty of Law, and Christopher Roberts, Assistant Professor at CUHK LAW, the conference aims to bring together a diverse and interdisciplinary group of scholars, researchers, and graduate students to share their research findings on topics relating to legal history in Asia.

Unfortunately, given the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in Vietnam, it will not be possible to conduct a mixed-mode conference as originally intended, in which a portion of the speakers attend in person. Instead, the conference will be conducted entirely online via ZOOM. The registration fee will also be waived. 

Speakers should note that no paper submission is required for the conference.

We look forward to seeing you all, albeit online, soon!
