You are cordially invited to participate in the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors’ (RICS) international Legal Research Symposium 2010, to be hosted by Paris, Dauphine University, France on 2 & 3 September 2010. I would be most grateful if you could circulate this email to colleagues who may be interested in attending.
A PDF copy of the call for papers is
attached and further details are also available at: www.cobra2010.com.
As in previous years (London 2006;
Atlanta 2007; Dublin 2008; Cape Town 2009) the symposium will take place as part
of the international interdisciplinary RICS ‘COBRA’ research conference. The
symposium is now a well established part of these conferences with almost one
third of all papers at the most recent Cape Town conference being presented in the law
Contributions are invited for the
2010 symposium in Paris. These will take the form of scholarly
written papers for presentation at the symposium by their authors. All
contributions will be subject to prior peer-review and will also be published in
the formal proceedings of the COBRA 2010
Contributions should address legal
topics affecting the built environment, or the work or education of chartered
surveyors and may focus on property law, housing law, planning and environmental
law or legal issues affecting the development, construction or management of
land and property. The scope of the symposium is
deliberately wide and will accommodate the maximum possible range of subject
areas and scholastic styles. In view of the international scope of the symposium
comparative studies of the law or practice in two or more jurisdictions are
particularly encouraged. However, all recognized forms of legal scholarship
including doctrinal, theoretical, empirical, or socio-legal contributions are
also most welcome.
In the first instance abstracts of
300 words maximum should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by 2nd
April 2010. (Subject to prior approval of abstracts, full papers should then be
submitted by 2nd July 2010).
