- James Whitman, "From Masters of Slaves to Lords of Lands: Imagining Ownership in the Western World"
- Doreen Lustig, "Towards a Grassroots History of International Law"
- Tamara Morsel-Eisenberg, "Rabbinic Responsa and Legal Communication"
- Paul du Plessis, "The Limits of Legal History"
- Elisabetta Fiocchi, "Transnational Entanglements in Land Law and Land Registration in the 19th Century"
- Heikki Pihlajamäki, "Transnational Elements in Colonial Laws: Spain, Portugal and the Netherlands"
Participation in the workshop is open to all interested scholars, junior and senior alike. Students may be able to receive academic credit through Tel Aviv University.
