The Law Section of the Organising Committee of College of Arts & Social Sciences Postgraduate Conference, at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland invites graduate students undertaking legal research to submit abstracts for consideration. The Conference will take place over two days (11-12 June) in the beautiful surroundings of King’s College, University of Aberdeen, Scotland. The aim of the Conference is to give graduate students in law from across Scotland, the United Kingdom, Europe and the world the opportunity to present papers reflecting excellence in legal research. This event aims to bring together postgraduate, in particular research students with an interest in all aspects of legal research, but particularly those with a comparative, European, international or interdisciplinary perspective. Our goal is to encourage all areas of legal research at the conference. You are invited to be an active participant in the symposium by presenting a piece of your own work to an audience of other PhD students, academics and interested members of the public. This will give you the valuable opportunity to practice talking about your own work alongside others at similar stages in their academic careers. “Moving forward”, the theme of the conference, is designed to allow as many people as possible to discuss recent developments in law.
It will provide a forum for debate, the exchange of ideas, and the furtherance of knowledge. Papers must be no longer than 20 minutes in length, and may include audio and visual elements within this timescale. Presentations will be grouped thematically and panels will allow for discussion following each paper. Interested applicants should send a 500 word abstract and a CV by the 14th April 2008 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Authors will be notified of acceptance by 28 April 2008.
