The Public Law Section of the SLS provides a forum for members to meet and discuss their research in this field. We meet at the annual conference and we also maintain links with the Law Commission and other public bodies by responding to consultations. We define Public Law broadly to include all aspects of constitutional and administrative law. Recent conference papers have covered topics such as devolution, public law theory, human rights, tort liability of public authorities and the contracting out of public services. We aim to encourage lively and stimulating discussion in a friendly atmosphere.
