2013 IGLP Conference

IGLP’s 2013 Conference: New Directions in Global Thought: IGLP at Five took place June 3-4, 2013 at Harvard Law School. Thank you to all of those who shared their ongoing research with us.  We proudly hosted more than 300 scholars from around the world to share their work on a variety of panels during the Conference.

Our inaugural conference was a celebration of the IGLP’s first five years and we invited all those interested in pursuing new thinking about law and global policy to join us in Cambridge.  We are particularly pleased that IGLP alumni and friends found the Conference a useful opportunity to share their ongoing research.  The 2013 IGLP Conference was held directly following the 2013 Law and Society Association conference (May 30-June 2, 2013), which was convened in Boston.

Santander Universities have generously agreed to be the Leading Sponsor of the June Conference as part of their commitment to higher education. Harvard Law School is proud to join with them in this effort.

Santander Universities was created by Banco Santander on the conviction that the best way of contributing to growth and economic and social process is by backing the higher education and research system. Banco Santander’s commitment to progress finds its expression in the Santander Universities Global Division, whose activities form the backbone of the bank’s social action and enable it to maintain a stable alliance with the academic world in Latin America, China, United States of America, Spain, Morocco, Portugal, United Kingdom, Germany, Poland, Singapore, and Russia. Santander Universities Global Division, a team of more than 2,100 professionals distributed across 17 countries, coordinates and manages Banco Santander’s commitment to higher education. Between 1997 and 2012, Banco Santander channeled $1 billion into sponsorship of academic, research and technological projects in support of higher education. There are now over 1,000 academic institutions receiving support from Banco Santander for the development of academics initiatives including Harvard University and the IGLP.
