The Society of Legal Scholars

Annual Conference Oxford 2016


SLS 2016 Annual Conference, University of Oxford

'Legislation and the Role of the Judiciary'

The 107th Annual Conference of the Society will be held in 2016 at the University of Oxford in St Catherine’s College.  The conference will run from the afternoon of Tuesday 6th September until lunchtime on Friday 9th September, 2016.  The theme of the conference is Legislation and the Role of the Judiciary.  Plenary sessions will focus on the modern approach to statutory interpretation, on whether the judges should develop the common law rather than leaving reform to the Legislature, and on the present and future work of the Law Commission.  As usual, papers for the Subject Sections seminars may examine any aspect of the conference theme but will be very welcome on any topic. 

I look forward very much to welcoming you to Oxford in 2016.
