Subject Section Keynotes

To mark the eminent scholarship to be found among our membership, the Society Subject Sections invite keynote speakers to the conference. These scholars provide an important focus for the subject sections by presenting their work, engaging with, and being challenged by other scholars (especially those at an earlier stage of career). This year we have introduced a new initiative, whereby the winner of the previous year’s Birks Prize for Outstanding Legal Scholarship is invited to be a keynote speaker in a section of their choice: we are delighted to welcome last year’s winner, Dr Oisin Suttle, who is speaking in the International Law section.

In addition, the Labour Law section is hosting a keynote panel session on reform of Employment Tribunals, featuring Judge Barry Clarke, President of Employment Tribunals in England & Wales, representatives of the Law Commission, including the Commissioner Nicholas Paines QC and Professor Catherine Barnard.

The SLS is grateful to the following keynote speakers who have accepted the invitation to this conference, and we look forward to their contributions.
