CALL FOR PAPERS: British Association of Comparative Law Postgraduate Research Workshop

Deadline 19th March.

The University of East Anglia will host the 2015 BACL Postgraduate Workshop on Comparative Law on 28th - 29th April 2015.

The BACL Postgraduate Workshop on Comparative Law is designed for doctoral students working on dissertations in the field of comparative legal studies and related subjects. In a round-table setting, the 2-day workshop will address both the benefits and methodological problems of postgraduate research in comparative law.

Participants will be provided with an opportunity to present their own work and thus gain useful feedback from their peers, as well academics in the field, including Dr Audrey Guinchard (Essex) and Dr Stathis Banakas (UEA).

The workshop will take place on the UEA campus, beginning lunchtime Tuesday, 28th April. The workshop will include plenary sessions, but the emphasis is on student presentations and group discussion. Students interested in participating in the workshop should submit an abstract of no more than 400 words and a short biographical note using the attached form by 19 March 2015.

BACL is subsidising the costs of this event, which is also sponsored by Intersentia, but a student contribution will be required. The contribution will be £30 for students from BACL member institutions* and £40 for students from non-member institutions (payable at the event in cash or by cheque to the British Association of Comparative Law). This includes participation in the workshop, lunch and refreshments as well as evening dinner on the 28th April. (Your institution may be able to assist with the costs.)

Students will also be expected to pay for and organise their own transport to Norwich, as well as their overnight campus accommodation (£54.00 B&B per night payable upon advance booking).

Applications should be sent to Claudina Richards (c.richards@uea.ac.uk), School of Law, University of East Anglia, Norwich, NR4 7TJ.
