CFP: Law and Social Transformation – Lancaster, UK

Lancaster University Law School

Lancaster University Law School hosts Law and Social Transformation February 9, 2019.

It is believed that law acts as a tool for social transformation. In today’s world, most aspects of human behaviour are regulated by legal rules and principles. From policies affecting the poor to regulating economic and political agendas between powerful nations, law plays an important role in shaping the future for coming generations. However, in the context of changing socio-political scenarios around the world, there is a need to re-evaluate our understanding of applicability of legal rules that can bring about real change and provide opportunity for the betterment of everyone. The question of how to apply ‘law’ is now once again open for debate and we intend to discuss it from a broad perspective.

Deadline: Abstracts of no more than 300 words should be sent to lawpgrconference[@] by November 15, 2018.
