Since November 2014, the Transnational Law Institute at King’s College London has been hosting a regular reading and discussion forum on seminal and new writings in transnational law, governance, and political legal theory. The READING LAB is an informal gathering to revisit or discover scholarly contributions to an emerging field where law and development meet and is open to anyone interested. There is only one rule: anyone attending ought to have read the assigned text.
Over the course of the next academic year, the Reading Lab will be hosted by the Transnational Law Institute at King’s College London. Accompanying the Reading Lab is a Transnational Law LL.M. module of the same title at The Dickson Poon School of Law, which is cross-listed to the International Development Institute and the Department of War Studies.
More information on the 2017-18 Reading Lab schedule and background reading list is available here.
There will be refreshments.
