I’m writing to invite papers for the Taxation Law section of this year’s Society of Legal Scholars annual conference. The 2013 SLS annual conference will take place at the University of Edinburgh from Tuesday 3rd September to Friday 6th September. Further information is available at http://www.legalscholars.ac.uk
The Taxation Law subject section will meet on Thursday 5th and Friday 6th September 2013 (in Group B). I’d be grateful if those interested in giving a paper could contact me, ideally by March 4th, with a provisional title and, if possible, a short abstract (say 200 words). You will find my contact details at the end of this notice. Potential presenters may wish to consider addressing the theme of the conference, which this year is ‘Britain and Ireland in Europe, Europe in Britain and Ireland’. That aside, papers would be welcomed on any area of taxation law, from any jurisdiction, and from colleagues at all career levels. Papers reflecting postgraduate research in progress are most welcome.
You do not need to be a member of the SLS to give a paper. However, I’m asked to remind those offering papers that the SLS does require all speakers to book, and pay for, attendance at the subject section meeting. Those presenting papers will be expected to provide an abstract of their paper by the end of July for the paper bank, and, ideally, a copy of the full version of their paper before the conference begins. There is a prize for the best paper presented in a subject section of the SLS (the rules for which can be viewed at http://conference.legalscholars.ac.uk/bristol/best-paper-prize.cfm). Finally, if you are intending to give papers to more than one subject section, please could you also mention that to help in timetabling the sessions of our meeting.
I hope to see you in Edinburgh in September.
