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


Call for Papers on Medical Law for the 2013 SLS Conference at University of Edinburgh

Deadline for abstracts - Monday 11  March 2013


Dear All,


Ruth and I are writing to invite proposals for papers for the medical law subject section meeting at the 2013 Annual SLS Conference which will take place from 3rd -6th September 2013 at the University of Edinburgh.  The Medical Law Section is in Group B and will therefore comprise two slots on Thursday 5th September and two slots on Friday 6 th September. We anticipate that each slot will host two papers followed by discussion (8 papers in total), but we are very happy to consider alternatives such as panel sessions.


The overall theme of the Conference is ""Britain in Europe: Europe in Britain"", but we are happy to see proposals for papers that do not directly address the theme. All colleagues, whether practitioners, research students, early career academics or more senior colleagues, are invited to offer papers. If you are interested in presenting a paper, please e-mail us with a title and a brief abstract. We are happy to discuss any potential submissions informally, so please get in touch. If you are proposing a paper for another section, we'd be grateful if you could let us know. There is no bar on giving more than one paper although it is useful for planning purposes and co-ordinating with other convenors to have a heads-up on this.


Finally, may we draw your attention to the competition for the prize for the best paper presented at the conference: those wishing to enter the competition must submit papers to the paper bank by 5pm on Monday 26 August 2013.


Please note that, as is the case each year, speakers have to book and pay to attend the conference.


We look forward to hearing from you!

Drs Amel Alghrani and Ruth Stirton
