Conferences

The SLSA promotes socio-legal studies through a variety of events. Key to our activities is our popular and successful Annual Conference which appeals to members and non-members alike. The conference is hosted by a different UK academic institution every year. The first official SLSA conference was hosted by the University of Bristol.

See our Annual Conference page for further information on past and future venues. 

In addition, the SLSA organises occasional one-day conferences with themes of interest to our members and co-sponsers international events with other socio-legal associations.
