Society of Legal Scholars Annual Seminar 2018: The Legal Legacies of the 2003 Iraq War

  • Monday 26th March 2018
  • SOAS University of London

On 20 March 2003, combat forces from the UK, USA and other coalition nations invaded Iraq. Fifteen years on, the Iraq War still has legal resonance.

This two-day (26-27 March 2018) seminar, hosted jointly by the Centre for the Study of Colonialism, Empire and International law at SOAS University of London and the School of Law at the University of Sheffield, seeks to explore the diverse legal inheritance of the 2003 Iraq War – the manner in which law has been made, and remade, by the conflict; the use of law as both a justification for and a site of resistance against the conflict; and the conflict as a catalyst for legal change.
