The conference aims to provide doctoral students and recent graduates with a forum to present, share and discuss their work beyond conventional academic boundaries. It seeks to promote quality research and to facilitate discussion across diverse subject areas and methodological approaches, with a view towards fostering a community of aspiring legal scholars.
The conference is open to current doctoral candidates, in law or law-related disciplines, and those who graduated during the previous academic year (2013-2014). Submissions engaging any area of law are welcomed.
Papers will be selected based on quality and their capacity to provoke fruitful debate with other submissions. Selection will be informed - but not strictly bound - by fidelity to the theme.
Abstracts of 300-500 words (with your institutional affiliations) should be submitted to yls.doctoralconference@gmail.
Selected applicants will be informed of acceptance in late August, and presenters will be asked to submit their papers of up to 10,000 words in length by October 10, 2014.
