Call for Applications: Law in Context Early Career Workshop

We have the following announcement [note the fast-approaching April 18 deadline]:
The International Journal of Law in Context and the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies at the University of Oxford jointly invite early career scholars to participate in a workshop to be held in Oxford, June 20–21, 2016. 
The purpose of this international workshop is to bring together scholars at a relatively early stage in their careers to support them in developing research projects and preparing publications to submit to scholarly journals in the field of socio-legal studies. During the workshop scholars will make a presentation, take part in discussion, and receive feedback on their work from senior research staff at the Centre and the editorial team of the Journal. The best papers presented at the workshop will be considered for publication in the International Journal of Law in Context.
To be eligible to apply, you must be either a PhD student in socio-legal studies whose doctoral submission is expected in 2016, or a post-doctoral researcher who has completed a thesis within the last three years. Applications from inside and outside the UK are welcome. The ten best submissions will be selected and applicants will be invited to the workshop.
To make an application you should send a 1500-word extended abstract together with a cover letter with your name and contact information, details about your place of study or work, and the date of your expected or past doctoral submission. Abstracts may be on any contextual work dealing with law and its relationship with other social science disciplines. The deadline for applications is April 18, 2016. Please send applications to Katie Hayward,
