- Due to an overwhelming response, applications are now closed.
The SLSA holds a free PGR Conference specifically for Socio-Legal PGR students every year. This year, the Postgraduate Conference is due to be hosted at/by Northumbria University in Newcastle on 11 and 12 January 2024. The event is FREE to attend (and accommodation is provided by the SLSA) but is limited to 50 places.
The Postgraduate Conference is an annual event aimed at postgraduate socio-legal researchers (primarily those in the first year of their PhD studies) who are just starting out on their research journeys. The Conference plays an important role in introducing postgraduate researchers to the world of socio-legal studies.
There will be plenty of opportunities for attendees to network with their fellow students and the SLSA academics running the conference. The sessions throughout the conference cover different aspects of PGR life with sessions on:
- Life Cycle of a PhD
- The Supervisory Relationship and Wellbeing
- Ethics and the PhD
- Getting Published
- Presenting your Research
- Getting your First Academic Job
Following these sessions, the Conference will hold informal events in the evening to allow postgraduate researchers to network and socialise. This year, this will include a drinks reception at Northumbria Law School and an evening social dinner.
