The FCIL-SIS is excited to announce the formation of a brand new Interest Group just in time for the Annual Meeting in San Antonio. Currently going by the name of “CARLIG” – an acronym for “Customary and Religious Law Interest Group” – this new IG will provide a forum for AALL members interested in the research and study of all types of customary, tribal, religious, and canon law systems.
CARLIG will hold its inaugural meeting on Sunday, July 13, 2014 at 7:00 AM in Marriott Rivercenter-Salon C, as part of the FCIL-SIS Subject Groups meetings. We will discuss leadership and group structure, future projects, potential programming proposals for the 2015 Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, and much more. Given the many FCIL-SIS members who have already expressed interest, the new IG is sure to gain traction and provide us with a forum to discuss and work on projects relating to these often overlooked areas of foreign law.
Whether you already specialize in religious or customary legal systems, have a work-related or “extracurricular” interest, or simply want to learn more about what they are, we encourage you to join us for our meeting in San Antonio! For additional information, or to be added to our membership list, please contact Susan Gualtier at firstname.lastname@example.org and join our My Communities group to receive notifications relating to future projects and events.
