On April 8-9, the University of Michigan Law School will host a Young Scholars' Conference entitled, "Law on the Move." The conference has been conceived and organized entirely by an entrepreneurial group of SJD students and Grotius Research Scholars who aim to create a forum for young scholars to present and discuss their work among their peers. Last year, the conference organizers received more than 100 submissions and look forward to fostering a vibrant discussion again.The 2016 Call for Papers can be found here.
