Call For Papers
The SLS subject sections are now issuing their calls for papers with a deadline of Friday 18th March 2016.
All abstracts must be submitted through the EasyChair conference system which can be accessed using the following link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sls2016.
Two written guides are available:
For the guide on on submitting a paper/poster click here;
For the guide on uploading your final paper or presentation click here.
If you experience any problems, please contact Jed Meers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The convenors are interested in any proposals relating to their sections, including those addressing this year’s theme of 'Legislation and the Role of the Judiciary’. Alternatively, if you would like to propose a topic of current interest for a panel or roundtable discussion, please do get in touch with the relevant convenor to see if this can be arranged. Their contact details appear below. If your proposed paper does not fit neatly within any of the subject sections, then you may wish to consider presenting within the Open section or presenting a poster instead.
Please note that whilst you need only submit a proposed title and abstract at this stage, speakers will be asked to submit a copy of their full draft paper no later than a week before the conference or, if that is not possible, their PowerPoint slides or an extended abstract (two sides of A4). This is to enable those who wish to read the papers in advance to do so thereby enhancing the quality of feedback and discussion in the subject sections.
In addition, speakers should note that they will need to book and pay to attend the conference. As part of a new initiative this year to reduce the number of late cancellations, speakers and poster presenters will be asked to register for the conference by the end of June in order to secure their place within the programme.
The subject sections will meet in either Section A (Tuesday 6th and Wednesday 7th September) or Section B (Thursday 8th September and Friday 9th September) of the conference, as follows:
|SECTION A: 6 & 7 SEPTEMBER 2016||SECTION B: 8 & 9 SEPTEMBER 2016|
|Banking and Finance
Hannah Quirk and Natalie Wortley
|Civil Liberties and Human Rights
Lorraine Talbot and Roseanne Russell
David Marrani and Greta Bosch
|Contract, Commercial and Consumer
Femi Ilesanmi and Rebecca Moosavian
|EU & Competition
Christian Henderson and Philippa Webb
Violeta Moreno Lax and Diego Acosta Arcarazo
|Practice, Profession and Ethics
Ann Lyon and John Stanton
|Property and Trusts
James Lee and Tatiana Cutts
Eric Descheemaeker and James Goudkamp
Please note that as the SLS is keen to ensure that as many members with good quality papers as possible are able to present, we discourage speakers from presenting more than one paper at the conference unless it is clear that there is space to do so.
