ASCL News & Events

The ASCL is not only comprised of scholars and institutional members, but brings together a global community analyzing the possibilities and limits of comparative analysis to understand the dynamics of governance.

@ASCLConnect is a platform for members to share events and foster new collaborations, and we invite submissions (calendar upload link coming soon). Our goal is to make @ASCLConnect a central repository of information regarding comparative law conferences, CFPs, writing competitions, prizes, as well as fellowship & career opportunities.
