16th March 2018

Further Call for Papers and Announcement of Keynote Speakers – Subject Sections at the Society of Legal Scholars Annual Conference

I write to encourage further responses to the call for papers for the Subject Sections programme at the Annual Conference. The deadline is approaching, on Monday 26th March. The Subject Sections are a vital and supportive part of the Annual Conference, and we hope to welcome many delegates as presenters in September. Details of how to submit are below.

The Society is also delighted to announce the current provisional list of keynote speakers for the various Subject Sections at the Society’s 2018 Annual Conference at Queen Mary University of London, which will run from Tuesday 4th to Friday 7th September 2018. The theme of the conference is ‘Law in Troubled Times’. We are very grateful to these senior academics for agreeing to speak and support the subject sections programme, and the list can be found here: https://www.legalscholars.ac.uk/2018/03/16/announcement-provisional-keynote-speakers-subject-sections-2018-sls-annual-conference/. (Please note that the current list is provisional and may be subject to change: not all subject sections are currently listed and further speakers may be added in due course.)

The individual calls for each subject section can be found on our website (the links for each section can be found below). We particularly welcome submissions for our new Subject Sections in Energy Law and the Conflict of Laws.

There are also slots in the Open subject section for those whose proposed papers or panels fall outside the existing subject sections.

If you are also interested in delivering a paper or organising a panel in any of our sections, please submit your paper abstract or panel details by 11:59pm UK time on Monday 26th March. All abstracts and panel details must be submitted through our new Oxford Abstracts conference system which can be accessed using the following link – https://app.oxfordabstracts.com/stages/488/submission – and following the instructions (select ‘Track’ for the relevant subject section). If you experience any issues in using Oxford Abstracts, please contact slsconference@mosaicevents.co.uk.

Please note that for the organisational and logistical reasons it is not possible to move the deadline, notwithstanding the recent UCU strike action.

The Society also offers a Best Paper Prize at the Annual Conference – the revised terms of the prize, and the eligibility criteria, are available on the Society’s website:https://www.legalscholars.ac.uk/best-paper-prize/.

Best wishes,
James Lee
Subject Sections Secretary
