The goal of the workshop is to get UK-based PhD students and early career researchers from law and the social sciences working together on the relationship between law and the social sciences. To do so, during the workshop, participants will produce written work to be presented at a conference to be held in December 2019. Thus, during the duration of the workshop series, each participant must present at least one written piece of no more than 4000 words on at least one of the suggested topics. The written work presented will be commented on by the other members of the workshop with the goal of helping to produce a full-length paper suitable to be presented at the conference.
