My colleague Andy Boon and I are convening a stream on Lawyers and Legal Professions:
Lawyers and Legal Professions
This stream welcomes papers on any aspect of lawyers and legal professions, including their work, organisation, ethics and regulation. We welcome a wide range of methodologies and perspectives, including historical analysis, empirical fieldwork and theortical applicaion and development. We are interested in a wide range of questions, from 'what lawyers do' to the absence of strong professional organisation in some jurisdictions. We are also, therefore, keen on comparative issues and particularly welcome overseas contributors.
Paper presentations will typically be 20 minutes in length. Anyone wishing to offer a paper should send a title and abstract via the DME SLSA Abstract form; http://www.dmu.ac.uk/faculties/business_and_law/conferences/slsa/slsa-abstract-submission.jsp
If you have any queries please feel free to contact Andy Boon or John Flood. Please submit your paper by February 1st 2009. Early submissions would be greatly appreciated.
