Eighth Annual International and Comparative Urban Law Conference

 The Urban Law Center at Fordham Law School and the Peter A. Allard School of Law at University of British Columbia (UBC) are pleased to announce the Eighth Annual International and Comparative Urban Law Conference which will take place from Thursday, July 14th through Saturday, July 16th

Since 2014, this annual International and Comparative Urban Law Conference has welcomed leading urban legal scholars from around the globe to present their research and works in progress. Now in its eighth year, the Conference continues to strengthen this tradition by providing a dynamic forum to share diverse international, comparative, and interdisciplinary perspectives on the rich intersection of cities and law.

The International and Comparative Urban Law Conference, held in coordination with the Association of Urban Legal Scholars (AULS), will include opportunities to engage urban pedagogy across diverse perspectives. The conference will also highlight local perspectives and experiences for a grounded understanding of Vancouver's dynamic urban legal context.  The Conference has long facilitated engagement across legal academic sub-specialties and across legal systems internationally to enrich our understanding of urban law and we look forward to welcoming you to Vancouver. 

Please note that the conference is being planned as an in-person event at UBC. However, if the status of the COVID-19 pandemic restricts international travel or compromises safety as we head into July 2022, the conference will be adjusted for a virtual format.
