The Asian Law Institute (ASLI)

The establishment of ASLI in March 2003, stems from the recognition that the diversity of legal traditions in Asia creates an imperative for Asian legal scholars to foster greater engagement with each other through collaborative research and teaching. ASLI aims to facilitate academic exchanges as well as research and teaching collaboration among law schools in Asia.

The 4th ASLI Conference 2007

One of ASLI’s principal activities is the convening of an annual academic conference to be hosted by its founding member institutions on a rotation basis. Each conference will examine contemporary legal issues of interest to Asian countries and will gather scholars and experts from the founding member institutions as well as from Asia and beyond.

The 4th Conference will bear the theme “Voices from Asia for a Just and Equitable World”. It will be held at the Faculty of Law, University of Indonesia (FHUI) in Jakarta, Indonesia, on Thursday and Friday, 24 and 25 May 2007.

All legal scholars are invited to attend and present papers whether they are from an ASLI founding member or from other institutions, and whether they come from within or outside Asia. Contributors are invited to submit papers on any of the tentative panel topics. However, ASLI would especially like to receive papers which are relevant to the conference theme.
The conference is also open to all whether or not they present a paper. The conference provides excellent opportunities for scholars in Asian law from around the world to meet and exchange ideas and to form closer working and personal relationships.

Please click to find our registration form, tentative panel sessions and programme. The registration form contains information such as the submission of paper abstracts, conference fees, hotel reservations, etc. We regret that no subsidies are available for expenditures such as air flights, hotel charges and conference fees. A detailed and finalized programme (speaker panels, etc.) will be made available to all registered participants nearer the date of the conference.
