The South Asian Legal Studies Annual Workshop is the only U.S. based annual workshop on South Asian legal issues. The first workshop was in 2007 and since then it has attracted scholars and practitioners from across North America, South Asia, and Europe representing multiple disciplines.

The workshop’s objective is to overcome a number of divides between scholars- particularly between researchers inside vs. outside of law schools; inside vs. outside of South Asian institutions; and working on colonial vs. post-colonial subjects. The workshop facilitates interaction among junior, and senior scholars; students and faculty; and academics and non-academics.
