New Voices in Commercial Law - Seminar 2

7 February 2013

Time: 4:45 - 7:10pm
Venue: Lecture Theatre, CCLS, 67-69 Lincoln's Inn Fields

This is the second seminar in the new annual seminar series ‘New Voices in Commercial Law’. The aim of this series is to provide a forum for debate and an opportunity for early career academics with outstanding potential to talk about their research in an intellectually stimulating, supportive and non-judgemental environment. It is further hoped that the series will offer an opportunity for networking with a view to future research collaborations and that it will become a useful vehicle for young academics to communicate their research and make an impact on the wider community. The general theme of this year’s New Voices is “Commercial Law: Past, Present and Future”. They will be chaired by Professor Philip Rawlings and convened by Dr Andromachi Georgosouli. Draft papers will be circulated electronically two weeks in advance to those who will have registered for the event.

Time: 4.45pm - 7.10pm (includes a coffee break with light refreshments).
