CFP: The British Legal History Conference 2015

The British Legal History Conference 2015 has issued the following Call for Papers:
Conference Venue:

School of Law, University of Reading
Reading, United Kingdom


The twenty-second British Legal History Conference will be held at the University of Reading between 8 and 11 July 2015. The conference theme is "Law: Challenges to Authority and the Recognition of Rights". The deadline for the submission of paper proposals is 30 September 2014.

We welcome proposals which explore challenges of various types, and which are concerned with any period of history. However, proposals concerned with Magna Carta, and especially with its impact beyond the UK, are particularly welcome.

In addition to all of the usual attractions of the main conference programme, we will be offering a special session for postgraduate and early career researchers. To celebrate the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta we are also hoping to organise an optional trip to Runnymede.

Conference Organisers: Prof Catharine MacMillan and Dr Charlotte Smith
