This will be followed by drinks and a buffet dinner to which all friends ofSocial & Legal Studiesare invited.
About the journal
Social & Legal Studies is a leading international journal, publishing progressive, interdisciplinary and critical approaches to socio-legal study. The journal was born out of a commitment to feminist, anti-colonial and socialist economic perspectives to the study of law. It offers an intellectual space for theoretically informed and empirically grounded work, where diverse traditions and critical approaches within legal study meet. We welcome work in new fields of socio-legal study, as well as non-western scholarship. In addition the journal has innovative occasional sections. Dialogue & Debate allows direct scholarly engagement between a range of positions on a topic of general interest to the socio-legal community. In 2017, the journal launched Review of a Field, an opportunity for authors to reflect upon their fields of study and to offer critical appraisals of the key literature and concepts.
