Diversity, dilemmas and discoveries: Legal history in the curriculum
15 December 2022
The Open University Law School
Legal History Research Cluster
Call for papers
What is the place and purpose of legal history in the wider law school curriculum? Research in the field increasingly engages with socio-legal approaches, histories of oppression and discrimination, and critical perspectives on the role of law. As law schools seek to diversify, liberate and decolonise the curriculum, legal history can and should play a vital role.
This online conference will explore how legal history contributes to the curriculum of the modern law school. We invite proposals for 15-minute papers on any aspect, and particularly welcome those which address the central theme of diversity, dilemmas and discoveries.
Abstracts (not exceeding 300 words) should be submitted by email to OULSfirstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 11 November 2022.
