Society of Legal Scholars,
114th Annual Conference

27th – 30th June 2023, Oxford Brookes University



In June 2023, we look forward to welcoming delegates to Oxford Brookes University for the 114th Annual Conference of the Society of Legal Scholars.

The conference theme is ‘Law and the Public Good’. In plenary sessions during the conference we will be joined by a panel of senior judges from the UK, European and overseas courts. In a second plenary, academics and speakers from NGOs will discuss their experience of using law practically in the cause of promoting justice, development and minority rights. Participants from our 28 subject sections are also invited to consider ways in which the law can identify and uphold the public good within their own discipline.
Oxford Brookes University has over 150 years of history, starting as a small School of Art and growing into one of the UK’s top modern universities. The conference will give delegates the chance to enjoy the best of the old and the new, with evening events to be held at Brookes, as well as in the Natural History Museum in Oxford; with our annual dinner at Magdalen College Oxford.
