“Law As …” is the umbrella title for a biennial symposium that, since 2010, has worked to assemble original configurations of historical, social scientific, literary, and legal scholarship in the service of conceptual innovation in the analysis and history of law.

Attendance is open to all-comers. The symposium is committed to mixing established senior scholars with junior scholars (including advanced pre-doctoral scholars); scholars trained in history with scholars from other disciplines in the social sciences and the humanities; and scholars based in North America (Canada and the U.S.A.) with scholars from Europe and Australasia. The results have been consistently stimulating and encouraging. The symposium has become well known and has a considerable following.

The first three meetings of the symposium took place at the University of California Irvine in 2010, 2012, and 2014. The fourth meeting will be held at Berkeley December 2nd – 3rd 2016. The theme for the fourth meeting is the exploration of “minor jurisprudence.”
