Dublin International Arbitration Day 2017

Arbitration Ireland is hosting a conference on 10 November which may be of interest to ISEL members – please see attached flyer for full details. Registration is via www.arbitrationireland.com


SLS 2017 108th Annual Conference, University College Dublin – ‘The Diverse Unities of Law’ – September 5th – 8th 2017

The 108th Annual Conference of the Society will be held in Dublin for the first time ever at the Sutherland School of Law, University College Dublin (UCD) from lunchtime Tuesday September 5 to lunchtime Friday September 8 2017.  The conference theme is ‘The Diverse Unities of Law’ allowing for exploration of different legal traditions and how diverse interpretations and practices have emerged between common law jurisdictions.  Implicit within it are notions of codification, the common law as a European legal tradition, the juxtaposition of legal pluralism and classic notions of the unified nature of law and of unity and diversity.  Contributions on any aspect of this theme and more generally are welcome.

The conference will be held in the UCD Sutherland School of Law building opened in 2013, just over 100 years since the School was established.  The main UCD campus is about 4 km from Dublin city centre.  Accommodation will be in hotels near the campus and in the city centre so delegates can make the most of Dublin.

The Irish Society for European Law has been published since 1992, and is a leading international journal on European law edited by Irish scholars and practitioners. Previous volumes are now available on the Society’s website at https://www.isel.ie/journal. The Journal – which is blind peer-reviewed – is now issuing a call for original papers for its 2017 volume.

Long articles (indicative length 8,000 – 12,000 words) and shorter articles (3,000-4,000 words), and analyses of any length of recent developments are invited. The theme for the 2017 volume will be ‘Brexit.’ Whilst papers may be general in nature, there is particular interest in those submissions which make some reference to the Irish dimension of Brexit. In general, the Journal welcomes submissions  on all areas of European law. In addition to the more traditional form of academic article, comment and opinion pieces on European-Irish affairs with a legal dimension, are also welcomed. Submissions are to be sent to ijel.submissions@gmail.com by Friday 28th of July 2017 in WORD format, size 12 font, single-spaced.
