Association of Transnational Law Schools – ATLAS
Bar-Ilan Law is a founding member of ATLAS - Association of Transnational Law Schools.
ATLAS was formed in 2006 with the mission of bringing together talented doctoral students in the field of law. ATLAS strives to promote in-depth study of legal issues related, but not limited to: the comparative legal and regulatory responses to globalization; the evolution of transnational law; and the challenges involved in international governance.
On a yearly basis, ATLAS organizes a summer school for graduate students, “Atlas Agora,” meant to think and rethink the present-day issues of international and transnational law. This event is designed to encourage legal scholarship by fostering a community of doctoral candidates and promoting the development of exceptional dissertations. The program consists of three different parts: lectures, workshops and the faculty conference. During the workshop sections, all participating doctoral candidates have the opportunity to present their graduate work-in-progress and receive expert commentary.
Current ATALS members are:
- Antwerp University, Belgium
- Bar-Ilan University, Israel
- Erasmus School of Law, Rotterdam, the Netherlands
- Osgoode Hall Law School, Toronto, Canada
- Queen Mary University of London, UK
- University College Dublin, Ireland
- Université de Montréal, Canada
