The Tenth UCD Law Postgraduate Workshop

Call for Papers:

Law and Social Change

The UCD Sutherland School of Law is pleased to announce the return of our UCD Law Postgraduate Workshop which will be held on Thursday, May 19th, 2016 in Dublin, Ireland. Papers are invited from postgraduate and early career researchers on topics which fall within the broad theme of “Law and Social Change.”

Social change is inevitable, yet the law does not always immediately change to reflect this. How does this dichotomy affect the legal profession, courts, society, and the law itself?

This event aims to bring together early and senior career scholars researching in law and other related fields to provide them with a platform for innovative thinking about current legal issues and how the legal field reacts to social change. We will particularly welcome submissions displaying a high level of originality, independent thinking and creativity in legal research.

The workshop aims to provide junior scholars with the opportunity to present and discuss their work and receive meaningful feedback from senior scholars and peers.

Abstract Submissions:

PhD students interested in presenting a paper at the Workshop are asked to submit an abstract of no more than 400 words and 3-5 keywords to, together with a short biographical note (up to 100 words). The deadline for submitting abstracts is April 22nd, 2016. Selected participants will be notified by April 29th, 2016. All decisions of the Committee are final.

Best Wishes,?

The Organising Committee
