UCL Laws is pleased to announce its 2017 Postgraduate and Early Careers Conference.

The theme of this year’s conference is ‘The Art of Balancing: The Role of Law in Reconciling Competing Interests’. Contemporary legal problems create the need to balance competing interests, values, rights, obligations, and freedoms. This Conference will explore the response of the law and legal actors to modern challenges, be it in the context of domestic law and national jurisdictions or in the framework of international law.

The conference brings together current doctoral students and young academics with interest in various areas of law from different parts of the world. The participants will present and discuss their work among academic peers from different backgrounds and legal disciplines, and engage with conference theme-related issues in the field of human rights, constitutional law, jurisprudence and interdisciplinary research, environmental law, EU and IP law, and international law.

The conference is open to UCL staff and students as well as general public, subject to mandatory registration.
