South Asia Legal Studies Workshops

(For other events organized by the South Asia Legal Studies Working Group, see here)

The first South Asia Legal Studies Workshop was held in 2007 and since then it has attracted a large group of scholars from across the U.S. representing a number of disciplines. It remains the only workshop in the U.S. on South Asian legal issues.

The workshop's objective is to overcome a number of divides between scholars- particularly between those working on colonial versus post-colonial subjects; inside and outside of law schools; and inside and outside of institutions in South Asia. The workshop facilitates interaction between young scholars, between junior and senior scholars, between students and faculty, and between academics and non-academics.

The workshop is planned and organized by Working Group members affiliated with the Center for South Asia and GLS Professor Mitra Sharafi (Law/History/Legal Studies) and Dr. Sumudu Atapattu (Law).
