Critical Analysis of Law

Critical Analysis of Law

An International & Interdisciplinary Law Review

Vol 1, No 1 (2014): Critical Analysis of Law and the New Interdisciplinarity

The journal's inaugural issue is devoted to the topic Critical Analysis of Law and the New Interdisciplinarity.  The issue features papers from an international group of contributors not only from law, but also from other disciplines. It aims to capture some of the diversity of approaches to engaging with law as a discipline, and to locate within these projects the conception of bilateral interdisciplinarity in and on law that drives CAL.

Contributors include:

  • Clifford Ando (University of Chicago, Classics)
  • Marianne Constable (UC Berkeley, Rhetoric)
  • Hanoch Dagan/Roy Kreitner (Tel Aviv University, Law)
  • Monika Fludernik (University of Freiburg, English)
  • Paul Halliday (University of Virginia, History)
  • Alon Harel (Hebrew University, Law)
  • Jan Smits (Maastricht University, Law)
  • Mariana Valverde (University of Toronto, Criminology)

Upcoming issues include a double book symposium (1:2) and a forum on New Historical Jurisprudence and Historical Analysis of Law (2:1). See the Announcements for further information.
