Socio-Legal Studies Association

Where law meets social sciences & the humanities

Poster exhibitions

In 2012, at our York Annual Conference, we introduced a poster competition. Here we bring together all the winning posters and some of the other entries to give a feel for the breadth and depth of the research of emerging socio-legal scholars.

After the cancellation of our Portsmouth 2020 conference, we hosted the Poster Exhibtion for that year on the SLSA Blog.
