Symposium: Law & Religion Meets Law & Economics

Villanova’s Charles Widger School of Law presents a symposium entitled “Law & Religion Meets Law & Economics” on March 17, 2017 from 9am – 4pm.

Scholars of law, religion and economics often see themselves as working in separate fields with few connections between them. This conference will explore Pope Francis’ teachings on market economics to bring these two bodies of legal scholarship into dialogue. Discussion will center around Pope Francis’ theological critique and assessment of global capitalism, and reaction to that critique from different of legal, economic and religious perspectives. The conference will also explore the traditional role of religious language in constructing legal duties and obligations, how law and economics has secularized this branch of law, and conclude by analyzing the concept of liberty in economic, legal and religious thought.

Conference: Cultural Expertise in Socio-Legal Studies and History

The Socio-Legal Studies Association hosts “Cultural Expertise in Socio-Legal Studies and History” on December 15-16, 2016.

This project will empirically investigate the use and impact of cultural expertise in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Data will be collected through ethnographic fieldwork integrating both quantitative and qualitative data for an extensive and in-depth assessment of cultural expertise in the judicial, pre-judicial, and extra-judicial settings. The objectives will be to: 1) map the terms, conditions, and costs of cultural expertise in civil law and criminal laws; 2) create an interdisciplinary toolkit for measuring the impact of cultural expertise; 3) establish an open access platform for the consultation of cultural expertise; 4) design a teaching and learning module using the cultural expertise impact toolkit; 5) and formulate policy-making guidelines for a cultural expertise leading to sustainable inclusiveness in Europe.
