British Legal History Conference 2013
Wednesday 10 July 2013 to Saturday 13 July 2013
The Twenty-First British Legal History Conference will be held at the University of Glasgow from Wednesday 10 July 2013 to Saturday 13 July 2013, coinciding with the tercentenary of the foundation in 1713 of the Regius Chair of Law at Glasgow. The conference theme will be Law and Authority.
The conference addresses the ways law has been shaped historically by different forms and ideas of authority, and how sources of law and frameworks for their application have developed over time in relation to concepts of authority, or to the authority of other institutions, processes or actors within the legal order.
The provisional programme is available from the menu to the left.
Registration is available from the menu to the left.
The basic registration fee is £105. This includes all drinks receptions, dinner on the opening night, lunches, and tea and coffee breaks for the whole conference, all as detailed in the programme.
The conference dinner is not included in the basic registration fee but can be booked for an additional £45.
Details on booking accommodation are available from the menu to the left.
