British Legal History Conference 2013

The Twenty-First British Legal History Conference was 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 principal organiser was Prof Mark Godfrey.

The conference theme was Law and Authority. Papers addressed 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.  Paper titles are set out in the Final Programme [1 July 2013]


Photographs of the conference are available from our Flickr site. Registered members are invited to leave comments.
