Modern Studies in Property Law Conference 2020

last modified May 30, 2019 08:36 PM
The 13th MSPL Conference will take place at Northumbria University Law School, Newcastle upon Tyne between Wednesday the 15th and Friday the 17th of April 2020

The conference welcomes papers and posters across all areas of property and land law including, for example, land law, the law of trusts, personal property law, property law theory, planning law, and the intersections between property law and other areas both within and beyond law. 

 

A selection of the full papers will be published in the prestigious conference book, Modern Studies in Property Law, which will be produced by Hart Publishing. By submitting a full paper you are agreeing for this paper to be considered for publication in this book. All full papers presented at the conference will need to be available as a complete draft 3 weeks before the conference; and revised drafts will be required 3 weeks after the conference. A process of peer-review will determine inclusion in the collection. Full papers should be in the region of 8,000-10,000 words.

 

Work in progress sessions will offer the opportunity to present projects at an earlier stage of completion for comments and discussion. Papers in this category will not be eligible for submission to the conference collection, but the expectation is that the sessions will provide constructive feedback useful in bringing the project to fruition. An outline handout or draft paper will be required 3 weeks before the conference.

 

Poster presentations will offer the opportunity to display a research poster during break times (tea & coffee breaks, lunch, pre-dinner drinks receptions) and provision will be made to allow delegates to comment on posters and/or to discuss the poster with the author. PGR students will also be offered this opportunity as part of integration between the PGR and main Conference proceedings.

 

The conference will also accommodate an integrated Postgraduate strand, and more details of this will follow.

 

Submission details

 

Proposals for papers should be sent to la.mspl@northumbria.ac.uk by 30 August 2019. Proposals should:
• Indicate clearly the category for which they are submitted, either (1) full paper (2) work in progress, or (3) poster.
• Include a short abstract of the paper (300 words)
• Include a very brief author CV (just a few lines)

The decision as to which papers to accept will be made by a panel of property lawyers and the results will be communicated in September 2019.
