North East Law Forum Conference 2019

Northumbria University


Transnational law in the era of globalisation

The North East Law Forum, organised by Newcastle University Law School and Northumbria University Law School, is pleased to announce the seventh annual North East PGR Law Forum Conference following the success of previous conferences. The theme of the conference this year is: ‘Transnational law in the era of globalisation: ensuring justice in a globalised world’. 

Law has traditionally been the jurisdiction of the nation state. In contrast, international law has been comparatively weak with little effective enforcement powers. Now, globalisation is changing the contours of law and creating new global legal institutions and norms. We invite postgraduate, Masters, and PhD students, from any institution, to present research considering law in a globalised world. The conference provides a great opportunity for students to present their research in a friendly and supportive environment with other budding academics. We welcome abstracts in all areas of law.

Contributions may take the format of paper presentations, posters or Pecha Kuchas. And prizes will be awarded for each! Please see the Call for Papers for more details.
