‘Law in Context’ Early Career Workshop 19-20 June

The International Journal of Law in Context, the Oxford Centre for Socio-Legal Studies and the Law in Societies Cluster at Wolfson College Oxford, jointly invite early career scholars to participate in a workshop to be held in Oxford, 19-20 June 2023.

The purpose of this international workshop is to bring together scholars at a relatively early stage in their careers to support them in developing research projects and preparing publications to submit to scholarly journals in the field of socio-legal studies. During the workshop scholars will make a presentation, take part in discussion, and receive feedback on their work from senior research staff at the Centre and the editorial team of the Journal. The best papers presented at the workshop will be considered for publication in the International Journal of Law in Context. The deadline for applications is 30 April 2023.

To be eligible to apply, the submission of a doctoral thesis must be planned for 2023 or been completed within the last three years. Applications from inside and outside the UK are welcome. The ten best submissions will be selected and applicants will receive a formal invited to the workshop. To make an application you should send a 1500-word extended abstract together with a cover letter with your name and contact information, details about your place of study or work, and the date of your expected or past doctoral submission to admin@csls.ox.ac.uk. Abstracts may be on any contextual work dealing with law and its relationship with other social science disciplines.

This event is the third capacity building workshop that the Centre will have hosted in a twelve month period.  The photograph above shows participants in the January 2023 SLSA postgraduate conference.  This followed the Methodology Masterclass organised by Linda Mulcahy in September 2023.
