This weekend, Harvard’s International Law Journal will host its annual symposium, “Diffusion of Law in the 21st Century: Interaction and Influence.” The conference will bring together scholars and practitioners to discuss the “globalization” of legal ideas and institutions in different areas of law. The event will take place on March 4, 2006 in Pound Hall on the HLS campus.
