Call for Presenters: Jewish Commercial and Intellectual Property Law Through the  Ages

A One-Day Regional Conference of the Jewish Law Association

30 October 2017 at the American Jewish University, Los Angeles, California

Co-Sponsored by Pepperdine University's Diane and Guilford Glazer Institute for Jewish Studies

 

In the Jewish legal system, trade and commerce provide the very paradigm of laws “between a person and his/her fellow” (bein adam le-havero). Papers in this conference will explore the development of Jewish commercial and intellectual property law, the interaction of Jewish and non-Jewish legal material in this area, writing about Jews and commerce, the theory of Jewish commercial law, and the implementation of such law throughout history. The conference organizers would also welcome presentations about how contemporary Western law might incorporate Jewish commercial and intellectual property law into its statutes and agreements.

 

It is the organizers’ intention to include final versions of the presented papers in a future volume of Jewish Law Association Studies, which will include additional papers not presented at the conference on the same topic.

 

Participants should submit a 250-word abstract and 1-paragraph biography to Phil Lieberman at JLA2017LA@gmail.com by 15 September 2017. Decisions will be sent via email prior to 1 October 2017.
