Emotions in Legal Practices

Registrations are now open to attend a 2-day international conference, Emotions in Legal Practices: Historical and Modern Attitudes Compared, at The University of Sydney 26-28 September 2016.

This interdisciplinary conference aims to stimulate genuine debate and encourage serious reflection on the enduring ‘problem’ of rationality and emotions. Our aim is for scholars and legal practitioners to bring their different disciplinary expertise to reconsider collectively the role of emotions in legal practices both historically and today and, potentially, inform new legal policies.

Emotions in Legal Practices

Members of the ILCR may be interested in the Emotions in Legal Practices conference, more details of which can be found here:
In addition to hearing from invited speakers, the conference has issued a call for posters for a more novel session in which they ask for poster presentations of research accompanied by a 3-4 minute speed-bite presentation. The aim is to showcase national, international and interdisciplinary research in a dynamic format. In addition to the speed-bite presentations, there will be plenty of time for presenters to answer questions on their research. 
The conference will run 26-28 September in Sydney. It will be followed by a Postgraduate Advanced Training Seminar (PATS) on 29 September convened by David Lemmings (History, The University of Adelaide) and Kathryn Temple (English, Georgetown University). There are travel bursaries available to facilitate attendance at the conference and participation in the PATS.
