Socio-Legal Studies Association

Where law meets social sciences & the humanities

Research outcomes

The SLSA launched its Research Grants in 2000 and its Seminar Competition in 2007. Since then, many grantholders and seminar organisers have gone on to publish books, chapters, articles and blogs as a direct result of these activities. 

If you have been the recipient of an SLSA grant or seminar award that resulted in a subsequent publication, we would be grateful if you could send details so that they can be uploaded to this page in order to showcase the wide array of talent and intellectual diversity within the association.
