North East PGR Law Forum Conference

June -

Northumbria University

The North East PGR Law Forum, organised by Northumbria Law School and Newcastle Law School, is pleased to announce the fifth annual North East PGR Law Forum Conference following the success of previous conferences.

The conference provides a great opportunity for postgraduate students, Masters or PhD, to present their research work in a friendly and supportive research environment. This conference is for any PGR students, from any institution, whose research is connected to the law.  We encourage abstracts for one, or more, of the following:

The conference unites the postgraduate community in a celebration of collaboration and diversity, with prizes for winning papers, pecha kuchas and posters. The aim of this conference is to facilitate a dialogue and exchange ideas on contemporary legal and research issues with other researchers and leading academics, through presentation of research together with plenary sessions.

All forms of presentations will be judged by academics from Northumbria and Newcastle Law Schools, who will provide valuable feedback on the presentation, content and delivery. This Forum is an excellent opportunity to present and challenge your research, whether it be your first paper or not! Lunch will be provided and there will be a drinks reception at the end of the conference. This is a further opportunity to meet fellow PGRs and to network with academics from various institutions.

This is a call for papers for the North East PGR Law Forum Conference 2017 which is to be held at Northumbria University Law School on 30th June 2017. The theme of the conference this year is ‘Intersections between law and research: how legal research is being done and its impact’.
