Modern Studies in Property Law call for papers

One-day event: call for papers

Keele Law School is delighted to host the next Modern Studies in Property Law (MSPL) 2019 One-day Event.

The event will take place in Keele Hall on Thursday, 11 April 2019.

Over the course of the day, a series of mini-workshops will allow for a variety of speakers to present their work in progress within a supportive and informal environment. Each mini-workshop will include an opportunity for feedback and general questions and will be chaired by a colleague who will introduce the papers and take a lead role in the discussion which follows.

The event is an exciting opportunity for anyone with an interest in property law scholarship to meet and discuss their current research. It is open to property scholars at any career stage and accommodates all types of property law research, including (but not confined to) land law, trusts and charity law.

This event is free for all attendees, but does not include travel and other associated costs.

Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided.
