Socio-Legal Studies Association Annual Conference, April 2014, Aberdeen, Scotland, UK
The Socio-Legal Studies Association of the United Kingdom is hosting its annual conference from 11-14th April 2014 in Aberdeen, Scotland.
In recent years the conference, which is open to all aspects of socio-legal/law and society research, has attracted an average of 350 delegates from across over two dozen countries. Delegates came from a variety of backgrounds and at different stages in their professional career, from early career researchers through to the most eminent scholars in their field. Many enduring scholarly connections have been established at the SLSA conference over the years.
It is particularly apt that the 2014 SLSA conference is to be held in Scotland as it prepares for a referendum on independence and there will be a number of themed events to mark this. Other themes and streams include Colonial Legalities, Criminal Law and Criminal Justice, ADR, Gender Sexuality and Law, Family and Child Law and Policy, Access to Environmental Justice, Indigenous Minority Rights, Banking and Finance. For a full list please see the conference website.
Whilst visiting Aberdeen, delegates will have the opportunity to explore some of the most beautiful part of the United Kingdom and enjoy fine Scottish hospitality including a ceilidh dance and dinner at Aberdeen’s newly refurbished Beach Ballroom.
