The International Association of Legal Methodology & the Center for Legislative and Evaluation Studies, University of Geneva is all set to hold a conference together in the year 2014.

The International Association of Legal Methodology under the University of Sherbrooke, founded in the year 1989 , aims at  establishing relationships between lawyers interested in legal methodology.

 

THEME:

“Assessment of Research in Law: Stakes and Methods” 

DATE:

February 13-14 , 2014

 VENUE:

Geneva (Switzerland) 

GOAL:

Legal scholars are now encouraged to engage in research assessment by measurement. Legal research often focuses on questions within a specific national or regional legal framework, which sets basic principles that, to a large extent, exclude the international comparability of the findings. 

The conference aims to explore the following questions:

  •  The different issues at stake with research assessment (institutional, financial, legal, etc.)
  •  The different models for research assessment (bibliometrics, peer-review, etc.)
  •  The new channels of research distribution (future of paper journals, digitalization, collaborative web)
  •  The impact on the education and training of legal scholars (role played by law faculties, lawyers or other stakeholders)
  •  The question of rankings (journals, universities)
  •  The constitutional aspects (academic freedom, freedom of speech, privatization of research)
