Call for Papers: Alternative Dispute Resolution and Jewish Law

The Aspen Center for Social Values and the Jewish Law Association have announced a call for papers for a conference, “Alternative Dispute Resolution: Is this the future of law?”:

The Conference seeks to engage scholars of Jewish studies, and Law & Religion, on the theme “Alternative Dispute Resolution: Is this the future of law?”, with a particular focus on religious courts of arbitration. Our approach is interdisciplinary, and we welcome proposals for papers from scholars of all fields, including history, law, cultural studies, and the social sciences. We envision panels on some of the following themes, and we welcome submissions that have a historical perspective as well as a contemporary one:

Recent Developments in ADR

Marriage, Divorce, & ADR

Enforcing Religious Arbitration

Islamic Law in America

ADR: Are Jewish Courts a Good Model for Success?

Comparative perspectives are also welcome.

The deadline is November 30. Details are here.
