Submit an Abstract -

Multiple paper submissions are allowed, but must be declared on each abstract submission form.
Submit a Poster Proposal - deadline extended to 6pm 14th March 2016
Poster proposals may be submitted on any socio-legal topic. Submissions from PGRs and staff at any career stage are welcomed.
The Poster Session takes place separately to the parallel session programme.
The SLSA has put together a collection of posters from Warwick 2015.
Poster proposals should not be submitted via Easy Chair. Poster proposals should instead be submitted to email@example.com with 'Poster Proposal' in the subject line.
Modification of Existing Abstracts
Existing abstracts can be modified via Easy Chair until Friday 29th January at 23:59.
After this time authors should contact the relevant stream convenor and firstname.lastname@example.org
In general, each panel is 90 minutes long, contains 3 papers each of 20 minutes, leaving 30 minutes for discussion. Stream and Theme convenors will provide more specific information on the structure of their sessions, which may differ from this model, nearer to the time
In line with the SLSA's ethos, papers may be interdisciplinary in nature, and submissions from outside of law are welcome. Similarly, papers concerning socio-legal issues beyond the UK are also welcome.
If your proposal concerns something other than a paper (for eg a joint panel proposal, a 'meet the author' session, a film screening etc.), you should contact the relevant stream or theme convenor to discuss this.
