The Society of Legal Scholars Conference

Annual Conference Dublin 2017


SLS 2017 108th Annual Conference, University College Dublin

'The Diverse Unities of Law'

September 5th- 8th 2017

The 108th Annual Conference of the Society will be held in Dublin for the first time ever at the Sutherland School of Law, University College Dublin (UCD) from lunchtime Tuesday September 5 to lunchtime Friday September 8 2017.  The conference theme is ‘The Diverse Unities of Law’ allowing for exploration of different legal traditions and how diverse interpretations and practices have emerged between common law jurisdictions.  Implicit within it are notions of codification, the common law as a European legal tradition, the juxtaposition of legal pluralism and classic notions of the unified nature of law and of unity and diversity.  Contributions on any aspect of this theme and more generally are welcome.

The conference will be held in the UCD Sutherland School of Law building opened in 2013, just over 100 years since the School was established.  The main UCD campus is about 4 km from Dublin city centre.  Accommodation will be in hotels near the campus and in the city centre so delegates can make the most of Dublin. 

I look forward to seeing you in September 2017.
