The 4th MSPL Postgraduate Research Conference will be held at the newly refurbished Bentham House, home of the UCL Faculty of Laws, on 12th April 2018. The conference provides a unique opportunity for research students in property law (or those who have recently finished their research studies in the area) to present their work, make contacts, and receive feedback. It is closely linked to the 12th Biennial MSPL Conference, with which it shares a venue, and those attending the PGR conference will have the opportunity to attend the closing plenary session of the MSPL Conference on 12th April. As well as paper presentations, the PGR conference will also include a session on careers advice.
The call for papers for the Postgraduate Research Conference is now open. Paper proposals should consist of a 250-300 word abstract, a very short CV (including your institutional affiliation), and brief details of your postgraduate research project. Please make clear too if you are a current postgraduate research student, or if you have recently completed such research (in the latter case, please include the date when you completed the research). The deadline for submissions of paper proposals is 4pm on Friday 15 December 2017. Please submit proposals, as well as any queries, to: firstname.lastname@example.org
