Description: Hector MacQueenThe following notice recently appeared for the Society of Legal Scholars Annual Conference, to be held at the University of Edinburgh from 3-6 September:

Welcome to the SLS Annual Conference 2013

The Society's 104th Annual Conference will be held at the University of Edinburgh, starting in the afternoon of Tuesday 3 September 2012 and finishing at lunchtime on Friday 6 September. The main theme of the Conference will be Tis' Forty Years Since: Britain in Europe, Europe in Britain; contributions on other topics to Subject Section seminars will, of course, be welcome. The Conference will be based at Pollock Halls, where Scottish Baronial architecture combines with some of the best modern conference accommodation in Edinburgh, offering well equipped en suite rooms with a range of options. Publishers' stands and most conference sessions and refreshments will be at Pollock, and there will also be opportunities to enjoy some of Edinburgh's well-known venues, including a reception at the Castle.
I hope that you will be able to attend the Conference, which promises to be a stimulating occasion with the opportunity to exchange ideas and socialise with colleagues from the UK, Ireland and further afield. Further information on the 2013 Conference will appear here in due course.
Booking will open May 2013 and members will be able to book via this site.

The division of Subject Sections into A and B groups will, be confirmed on the Society's website in early 2013. Members will then be able to check the days on which their particular Subject Section programme is running. General enquiries may be addressed to the Subject Sections Secretary on sss®legalscholars.ac.uk
Call for Papers
Subject Section Convenors will be sending out a call for papers in February 2013. Contact details will also be available on the Subject Sections pages. Members are invited to register their interest in delivering a paper with the relevant convenor.
