Books bring together papers on Contemporary International Law
The Global Law Program, a pioneering initiative by FGV’s Sao Paulo Law School (Direito SP), which for almost a decade has been offering courses in English on global topics from a Brazilian perspective, will launch two volumes containing papers on contemporary global issues, on December 6, at Livraria da Vila dos Jardins. These topics include economic regulation, anti-corruption measures, new technologies, tariff harmonization, environment, population displacement across borders and reformulation of premises between law and development.
The first volume, Global Law: Contemporary Challenges, Future Perspectives (Digital Edition, Acadêmica Livre) republishes papers by professors who participated in the Global Law Program on topics discussed in the classroom. There are contributions by professors from Northwestern Law School, National University of Singapore Law School, Koç University Law School, University of San Diego School of Law, King’s College London – The Dickson Poon School of Law, University of Lisbon Law School, University of Wisconsin Law School, Law School of Turin University, ESADE and Direito SP.
The second book, Global Law: Legal Answers for Concrete Challenges (Print and Digital Editions, Ed. Juruá), which comprises original articles, selected four subjects considered crucial to contemporary legal discussion: regulation and relationship between the public and private sectors; systemic corruption and anti-corruption measures; environment and human rights; and new technologies and legal paradigms. The book includes contributions by authors from the National Research University Higher School of Economics Moscow, Fordham University Law School, EBS University, Law School of Turin University, in addition to professors and collaborators from Direito SP. The book’s coordinators also wrote general explanations on each of the four topics.
It is important to note that many authors are part of foreign institutions that make up the Law Schools Global League (LSGL), created in 2012 through an initiative of Direito SP and University of Tilburg Law School.
Both books were edited by Maria Lúcia Pádua Lima, Professor and Coordinator of International Relations at Direito SP and responsible for creating the Global Law Program, and José Garcez Ghirardi, a professor from Direito SP.
