The Centre for Mediaeval and Early Modern Law and Literature has enjoyed five very successful years at St Andrews, with reading groups, conferences, workshops, and lectures. Under the joint leadership of Lorna Hutson (English) and John Hudson (History) it has been a place for very fertile inter-disciplinary discussion and development. We look forward to continuing this inter-disciplinary discussion once Lorna has taken up the Merton Chair of English Literature at Oxford in the summer of 2016.

From the end of the academic year 2015-16, the St Andrews Centre will become a collaborative forum between St Andrews, Oxford, and Cambridge, with Law and Literature events continuing at St Andrews under the auspices of the Institute for Legal and Constitutional Research.
