Next year’s Annual Forum of the Association of Young Legal Historians will be held on 2–5 April 2014 in Cambridge, England.

This is the first time the Annual Forum has been held in a common law jurisdiction, and the chosen theme of ‘Common Laws’ invites attention both to the common law legal tradition, and also to the recurrent themes of legal commonality, harmonisation and integration that have been a feature of the Association’s Annual Forums over the past two decades.

The Call for Papers is online, and applications can be sent to forum2014@aylh.org until 31 January 2014. We look forward to your application, and we will be delighted to welcome you to Cambridge next spring.

XIXth Annual Forum of Young Legal Historians - Call for papers

Next year’s European Forum of Young Legal Historians will be held on 15 – 18 May 2013 in two cities in two different countries. At first sight, Lille (France) and Ghent (Belgium) may seem very different, being divided by language (French-Dutch) and nationality (French-Belgian) but from a historical point of view, they have much in common, as they belonged to the historical county of Flanders for many centuries.
This forum has “(Wo)men in Legal History” as main theme, but original contributions on other subjects will also be accepted. The Call For Papers is online and applications can be sent until the 31st of January. We are looking forward to your application and will be delighted to welcome you in Lille and Ghent next spring.
