The Legal History section will meet in the second half of the conference on Thursday11 and Friday 12 September. We welcome proposals for papers on any issue relating to legal history, including, but not confined to, those addressing this year's conference theme. Alternatively, if you would like to propose a topic of current interest for a panel or roundtable discussion, please do get in touch to see if this can be arranged.
Please note that whilst you need only send a proposed title and abstract at this stage, speakers are encouraged to submit a full paper to the SLS paperbank before the conference. The SLS offers a Best Paper Prize which can be awarded to academics at any stage of their career. The Prize carries a £250 monetary award and winning papers are published in Legal Studies. Further details about the Prize are available at http://sections.legalscholars.ac.uk/best-paper-prize.cfm, though please note that to be eligible all authors must be fully paid-up members of the SLS and the paper must not
- have been published previously or have been accepted or be under consideration for publication; or
- exceed 10,000 words.
