Annual Conference


The SLSA has been running an Annual Conference since the association was founded in 1990. Our conferences are central to our objective of the dissemination of knowledge in the field of socio-legal studies. For details about all previous conferences, please visit our past conferences page

For further details of our popular 'streams and current topics (formerly themes)' format, visit our Streams section.


Future conferences

  • 4–6 April 2023, Ulster University
The call for papers is now open. Call closes: 9 January 2023.
  • 26–28 March 2024, University of Portsmouth
    Portsmouth was the scheduled destination for SLSA 2020, unfortunately cancelled due to the pandemic, so the Board is particularly pleased that the Portsmouth has offered to host the conference four years on.
