Call for papers on Legal Education for the 2013 Society of Legal Scholars Annual Conference.


SLS Annual Conference 2013: Legal Education Section Call for Papers Dear colleague, It is a pleasure to invite contributions to the SLS Annual Conference, which will take place in Edinburgh this year. The theme of the conference is “Britain and Ireland in Europe: Europe in Britain and Ireland” (for further details see, http://www1.legalscholars.ac.uk). The Legal Education Section will meet on Tuesday 3rd September and Wednesday 4th September 2013. The Section welcomes papers on the theme of the conference, in addition to any aspects of Legal Education. Given that we are expecting the report of the Legal Education and Training Review any day now, the section particularly encourages contributions on this topic. These sessions are supportive, informative and constructive, and contributions from research students, and early career academics as well as senior colleagues are welcomed.

If you are interested in submitting a paper, please forward your title and an initial abstract (200-300 words) to Caroline Strevens (caroline.strevens@port.ac.uk ) by the 4th March 2013 for consideration. If your paper is accepted, you will be required to submit a final version of your abstract to the Paperbank by 31st July 2013 (papers@legalscholars.ac.uk). Speakers are also encouraged to submit a written paper to the Paperbank in order to be considered for the Best Paper Prize; the entry conditions for which are available via the SLS website. Booking for the conference opens in May. I have been asked to remind speakers that they are required to book and pay for the conference in the normal way. For those speakers offering papers to more than one section please let me know so that we may avoid clashes in the conference programme; this does not mean that you will not be able to submit more than one paper. I look forward to hearing from you. With Best Wishes, Caroline Strevens
