Announcement of Provisional Keynote Speakers for the Subject Sections at the 2018 SLS Annual Conference

16th March 2018

The Society is 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’. This list is below: we are very grateful to these senior academics for agreeing to speak and support the subject sections programme.


We still welcome submissions in response to the Call for Papers for the various Subject Sections, to present in the programme alongside the keynote speakers. 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 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.
