2021 Critical Legal Conference

The 2021 Critical Legal Conference will be held at the University of Dundee, on 2-4 September. The Conference’s theme is ‘Frankenlaw‘ – it draws from Mary Shelley’s close relationship with Dundee to re-consider old and explore new directions in critical legal thought. 
Due to the ongoing covid-19 pandemic, the conference will take place in a blended format, with some face-to-face encounters in Dundee and others online. If needed, the event will be held fully online.

The call for streams can be found here. The deadline is 31 March. An indicative list of topics/themes can be found on the Conference’s webpage. Legal comparatists are welcome to apply. The Conference can indeed be a valuable opportunity to reflect collectively on comparative law’s deep-rooted dilemmas, recent trends, and future opportunities and challenges both as a scholarly discipline and professional practice.


Please note that the call for individual papers will be released in mid-April 2021, with papers being submitted directly to the conveners of the streams and accepted on a rolling basis until the deadline in June 2021.
