OtherWhile the traditional narrative positioned the legislature, and to a lesser extent the courts, as the main sources of law, it has long been known that the sources of and influences on law are far more varied. In recent times, more recognition has been given to sources such as indigenous laws and customs, social and cultural factors, and the economy, all of which actively or passively impact the creation of laws and the structure of our legal systems.

This ALAA conference celebrates the variety of legal sources and influences and poses the questions of how this legal pluralism will shape legal scholarship, systems, and teaching over the next decade
