Call for papers - new journal Derecho y Crítica Social The journal Derecho y Crítica Social [Law and Social Criticism] (DCS) has been created, with the aim of providing a platform for critical examination of the legal from the most diverse disciplinary perspectives. DCS is an international and multidisciplinary journal that is published in electronic format, and is subject to a strict policy of peer review. DCS will publish original articles in Spanish or English that are the result of original research, and Spanish translations of relevant articles previously published in other languages. However, it also seeks that thepapers published in it produce a reflection beyond the academic space about the social problems affecting Latin America. In particular, DCS is interested in identifying the role that law plays as a cause, condition or possible solution to these problems.

The editorial board of DCS invites submission of manuscripts for publication in the first volume of the journal, to be published during 2015. We welcome contributions from scholars with institutional membership and independent academics, as well as from university students. The call to publish in DCS is permanent and manuscripts can be sent at any time. This, however, does not guarantee publication in the next issue after the date of acceptance. As a suggestion, we recommend sending contributions until May 30 for inclusion in the first issue of the respective year and October 30 for inclusion in the second issue.

More information about the journal, its editorial board, the process of review and publication of articles, and detailed instructions for preparing manuscripts can be found on the website:www.derechoycriticasocial.com.

Full professorship position (professeur(e) des universités) is available at Sciences Po-Paris. We are pleased to announce that a full professorship position (professeur(e) des universités) is available at Sciences Po-Paris. This position is designed to bolster the work of the Center for the Sociology of Organizations on law, both as a normative environment within which organizations evolve but also as the product of organized action. Today, various programs at the CSO examine the production of law, its effectiveness, its implementation as well as compliance issues: whether by studying the influence of interest groups, lobbies or social movements in policymaking; by focusing on the endogenous production of rules and norms in organizations of which this is not the primary function, ranging from voluntary standards to informal or even illegal standards; or by analyzing institutionalization as a combination of top-down and bottom-up processes. In the United States and more recently in France, a dynamic stream of research has developed around the relationships between law, work and organizations. This recruitment aims to better include the research conducted at the CSO in such streams.
