Conference announcement: The 6th Asian Constitutional Law Forum


The Centre for Asian Legal Studies (CALS) invites you to The 6th Asian Constitutional Law Forum: Constitutionalism in the Courts: Judicial Review and the Separation of Powers in Asia, to be held at Faculty of Law, National University of Singapore, on 10 and 11 December 2015.

The Asian Constitutional Law Forum provides a venue for distinguished scholars and new scholars to share their research and ideas on Asian constitutional law, to expand collaborative research networks, and to facilitate publications.

The 2015 Forum, organised by the Centre for Asian Legal Studies at NUS, will address mainly the theme of constitutionalism in the courts, and will look at constitutional cases, issues, and overall performance of the judicial branch across Asia as judiciaries establish their independence of the other branches and encounter new and challenging issues.

The Forum was first held at the Seoul National University, Korea in 2005; the second meeting was at the Centre for Asian Legal Exchange at Nagoya University in 2007; the third at the College of Law of National Taiwan University in 2009; the fourth at the Centre for Comparative and Public Law at the Faculty of Law, University of Hong Kong in 2011; and the fifth at the Centre for Public Law at Tsinghua University School of Law in Beijing in 2013. This year the Forum is being held in Southeast Asia for the first time.

The programme and panel listing will be circulated at a later date.
