The Irish Society of Comparative Law (ISCL) and the School of Law of the University of Limerick are pleased to announce the sixth annual conference of the ISCL to be held in Limerick on 5-6 June 2015. The ISCL held its first annual conference here in 2009.

The conference organisers encourage proposals which have both comparative and historical elements. Submissions on any era of legal history will be considered, as will papers on comparative and historical methodologies. However, any comparative topic may be proposed, eg private law, criminal law and criminal justice, public or constitutional law, legal education, etc. In addition, proposals on European or International law will also be considered.

The deadline for receipt of proposals is Friday, 30 January 2015. Proposals by both members and non-members, as well as by professional academics and graduate students, are welcome.

Proposals should be short (250 words) and sent to the Conference Organiser, Dr Laura Cahillane at ISCL2015@gmail.com . Presentations will be twenty minutes long.

The Conference fee will be €50 for members of the ISCL and €100 for non-members. (Membership fees are €50, student membership is free). The ISCL regrets that it cannot cover travel or accommodation expenses.

Additional information will be posted at www.irishsocietyofcomparativelaw.blogspot.com.

The ISCL was established in June 2008 and is recognised by the International Academy of Comparative Law. The ISCL is open to those interested in Irish and comparative law. Its purpose is to encourage the comparative study of law and legal systems and to seek affiliation with individuals and organisations with complimentary aims. Queries should be directed to niamh.connelly@tcd.ie.
