Professor Boyne Participates in Comparative Law Event at Yale
The American Society of Comparative Law selected Associate Professor Shawn Boyne's paper "The Many Faces of Objectivity: A Look at German Sexual Assault Cases" as one of six papers discussed at the Sixth Annual Comparative Law Workshop held February 11-12, 2011 at Yale Law School. Professor Boyne uses an interdisciplinary lens to investigate the links between law, politics, and culture. Her current paper is based on a period of extensive ethnographic research in Germany in which Dr. Boyne interviewed over 100 German prosecutors and visited 15 different prosecution offices.
