Centre for Law and Society in a Global Context

Workshop Series for PhD Students

Legal Realism & Cross-Disciplinary Interaction Between Law and Social Sciences

Golden Gate Bridge under constructionThe Centre for Law and Society in a Global Context is hosting a series of workshops for PhD students on Legal Realism and cross-disciplinary interaction between law and the social sciences.

The series offers an opportunity for UK-based PhD students from law and other disciplines to enhance their research activity by producing and presenting written work, and by developing collaborative contacts. For each seminar, designated participants produce a piece of written work (of up to 4000 words) on selected topics, which they present to the group. Presentations are followed by a discussion aimed to facilitate the production of full-length papers suitable to be presented at a conference, which is planned to take place following series.

The series is run by PhD students from different universities, including Felipe Figueroa (Warwick), Vicente Burgos (UCL), Manuel González (Oxford), and Sarah Court-Brown (QMUL). Dr Noam Gur acts as an advisor and coordinator on behalf of the CLSGC.

The series was launched in November 2018 and is planned to continue until December 2019. Seminars are held fortnightly during term time in Room LG1 (Lower Ground 1), Queen Mary campus in Lincoln's Inn Fields.

PhD students who wish to join the series or make further inquiries may contact Felipe Figueroa ( or Noam Gur (
