The International Society of Public Law will hold its second conference at New York University School of Law on July 1-3, 2015. The conference theme is “Public Law in an Uncertain World.” This event builds on the Society’s Inaugural Conference held last year in Florence, Italy, on “Rethinking the Boundaries of Public Law and Public Space.”

The 2015 edition of the conference will feature a keynote address by Ayelet Shachar, three plenary panels, and over 70 concurrent panels. The three plenary panels are detailed below. The concurrent panels are available here.
