Event description
Two-day conference discussing the state of socio-legal research in the context of Partnership Grants and other interdisciplinary projects.

About this Event

In 1978, only two SSHRC research grants were awarded in law, leading to the creation of the Consultative Group on Research and Education in Law and to the publication of the Harry Arthurs’ seminal “Law & Learning” report (Consultative Group, 1983). Forty years after the dismal scenario of 1978, legal scholars today are major participants in SSHRC Partnership Grants, its top funding programs, both as principal and co-investigators.

“Law & Learning in an Era of Partnerships” is a two day conference (Oct. 18-19), preceed by a pre-conference grad student workshop, that will discuss the state of socio-legal research in the current context of such long term, interdisciplinary and collaborative projects. We are bringing together 38 scholars and partners, which are: 9 graduate or postdoctoral students, 4 community members, 7 junior scholars and 18 senior scholars. The conference is designed as an intergenerational knowledge mobilization, dissemination and exchange. It is composed by a pre-conference workshop, seven panels and one plenary session, totaling eight main time slots (breaks not included):
