The Faculty of Law will host the Fourteenth Biennial Modern Studies in Property Law Conference on Tuesday 29 - Thursday 31 March 2022.

About MSPL

Modern Studies in Property Law is a world-leading forum for scholars with research and/or teaching interests in property law, attracting an international body of delegates. The conference series has its origins in the biennial conference first held by the University of Reading in 1996. Those conferences gave rise to the well-regarded book series, Modern Studies in Property Law which has published refereed papers from the conference since 2001. The conference has previously been held at Queens’ College, Cambridge (2008), New College, Oxford (2010), the University of Southampton (2012), the University of Liverpool (2014), Queen’s University Belfast (2016), and University College London (2018).
