Our Symposium which will take place between 10, 11, 12 March, 2017, aims to integrate foreign and Turkish law students, as well as expand their legal perspectives on specific international law issues by providing, seminars, workshops, case studies on fictional controversy.

Message from the Dean

Prof. Dr. Bertil Emrah Oder

Dean of the Law School

“In the last decade, cross-border developments in law and legal education made necessary to discuss all kinds of legal issues from global perspectives in the classroom, workshops, seminars and conferences. Through rise of human rights concerns vis-à-vis security measures, humanitarian law, injustices and ramifications for rule of law, international business transactions or regional economic actors, legal scholars and students are obliged to find legal solutions globally applicable at different levels, i.e. local, national, regional or international. Global perspectives for law are now indispensable to develop a common understanding aiming at preserving universal legal values and consolidating real sense rule of law in different legal cultures. Affirming its dedication to global studies of law both in comparative, regional and international sense, Koç University Law School strongly encourages law students to participate in “International Students Symposium on Law and Global Issues”. We believe that an international student conference will contribute to raise academic awareness as regards universal values of law and their conflict resolving effect. Please come and join us in Istanbul where this time not only the continents, but also global aspects of public and private law with law students meet.”
