The Centre for Law and Society in a Global Context at Queen Mary is hosting a one-day workshop titled ‘New Directions in Law and Time Scholarship’. The event will bring together leading scholars working on law’s connection to time to consider the changing landscape of this area and the potential that thinking about law and time holds today. Each of these will be led by a scholar (or group of scholars) working in the field who will facilitate the discussion. The event will be organised around four thematic roundtables.

This workshop is also supported by the Socio-Legal Studies Association.
