[PGR stream]

The PGR stream will open the conference on the Friday morning. The aim of the session is to provide a supportive and friendly environment for postgraduate students working in the broad field of judicial studies to share their research with fellow researchers, whilst gaining experience in presenting their work and answering questions from specialists in their field.

The speakers have been chosen through an open call for papers. However, we’ve still a few spaces. If you would like to present a paper, please email Elena Kapardis (EXK465[@]student.bham.ac.uk).
