Society Support for Socio-Legal Studies Association Conference

The Learned Society of Wales is delighted to support the annual three-day Socio-Legal Studies Association conference, which starts on 30th March.

The conference, held online, is organised by a team from Cardiff University’s Law School, led by Professor John Harrington.

The programme explores issues ranging from inclusion and justice to language rights, sustainable development to the implications of Covid-19 for human rights.

The conference will include a feature on the 1919 Cardiff ‘Race Riots’ and the launch of an online exhibition with the Paul Robeson Wales Trust. Professor Daniel Williams FLSW, a Fellow of the Learned Society of Wales, will be taking part in a session on ‘Decolonizing the Law School – Lessons from the Life and Work of Paul Robeson.’

The Society has supported the conference with an events grant of £1000.

Dr Sarah Morse, the Society’s Policy and Public Affairs Manager, said:

“We are delighted to support the SLSA’s virtual visit to Cardiff. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to fund bursaries to enable participants from the global south, as well as researchers based in the UK experiencing financial challenges in the present circumstances, to attend the conference.”
