The JLA 2017 regional conference will be hosted by the Institute for Legal and Constitutional History at the University of Vienna. It will take place in conjunction with the 9th Summer Academy on the History of the Jews in the Holy Roman Empire and its Successor States and two moot courts, one focusing on the Ius Commune and the other on Jewish Law as practised in the early modern period
The thematic focus of the JLA European Regional Conference 2017 will be on the roles, treatment and representation of Jews and Jewish law in non-Jewish legal systems. Contributions relating to one of the four areas outlined below are particularly welcome, though papers relating in other ways to the place of Jews in the legal profession or to inclusion of Jewish Law in non-Jewish legal systems are invited. With a view to promoting wider exchange with scholars and practitioners from countries in which the study of Jewish Law is less developed, proposals on other aspects of Jewish law will also be considered. If you are interested in presenting a full paper or a poster for work in progress, please send an abstract of between 400 and 750 words to Stefan Goltzberg at STEFAN.GOLTZBERG chez ULB.AC.BE, to be received no later than 10th January 2017.
