The University of Ottawa will host the Public Law Conference 2024. This major event will bring together jurists from around the world under the theme Rights, Duties and Powers in Public Law. This major event is part of a series of international conferences on public law that bring together a diversity of participants from academia, legal practice and the judiciary.
This exceptional forum for common law jurists from across the globe offers discussions and exchanges on public law matters. The upcoming conference, taking place in Ottawa from July 3 to 5, 2024, will emphasize legal pluralism, drawing inspiration from the Canadian experience. Canada indeed navigates the coexistence of different legal traditions within a federal framework that allows for the expression of multiple approaches to public law. The conference will unfold just steps away from the country’s most significant institutions, including Parliament and the Supreme Court of Canada. Participants will have the opportunity to delve into the challenges and opportunities posed by legal pluralism, acquiring fresh perspectives in an ever-evolving world.
Participants will benefit from the quality debates and discussions on a range of issues, spanning from fundamental principles to current affairs, fostering intellectual curiosity and enhancing comprehension of the intricacies of public law. The enriching conversations extend beyond the conference halls, encompassing the event itself, with one of the most significant contributions being the development and maintenance of a transnational community of public law jurists.
Mark your calendars for the 2024 Public Law Conference, jointly presented by the University of Ottawa and the University of Melbourne, with the support of Hart Publishing Ltd.
