THE ROLE OF LAW IN MEETING CONTEMPORARY GLOBAL
CHALLENGES

LLM STUDENT CONFERENCE

5th and 6th June, 2017.

The Kent Law School Graduate Conference Committee is pleased to announce that its fifth Graduate Conference will take place on 5th and 6th of June 2017.

In an era of increasing globalisation, there is a need to scrutinise the role of law in addressing the challenges associated with this development. There is an intensifying need to tackle the growing world population; migration and refugee crises arising from war and natural disasters; climate change and environmental degradation; manipulation of communication technologies against states and citizens, and national and transnational crimes.

The conference will focus on exploring law’s role in meeting global challenges in areas including but not limited to: Economic and Environmental issues, Global Policymaking, Technology, Targeted Killings, International and Transnational Crime, the Internet and Communication Technologies, Mass Migration and Shared Security/Global policing. The conference seeks to critically engage the legal and theoretical framework underpinning these issues and suggest possible alternatives.

Therefore, the Committee welcomes papers that discuss the theme of the conference from legal and other various academic perspectives. Abstract submissions should be no longer than 300 words and should be sent to lawgradconference@kent.ac.uk. Please note that full paper submissions are requested for consideration for the three prizes which are available for the best internal paper, the best external paper, and the best poster.

Professor Philippe Cullet of SOAS, University of London will deliver the keynote.
The annual Clive Schmitthoff Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Professor Fiona Macmillan from Birkbeck, University of London at 4.00 pm on Monday, 5th June 2017.
