Exploring the Consequences of Research

Date - Monday, 19th June 2017 - Wednesday, 21st June 2017 (All Day)


‘Exploring the Consequences of Research’ is a residential masterclass designed for students working in the field of socio-legal studies who are in the second year or later (or part time equivalent) of their PhD.   Research students are understandably focused on the production of, and promotion of the outputs from their doctorate, with a view to finding a job. This three day retreat which will be held from 19th-21st June 2017 at Gregynog Hall, Tregynon, Wales, will examine the responsibilities of scholars to produce something other than outputs that will allow personal progression.  In a series of sessions with leading socio-legal scholars, the responsibilities owed to wider communities will be examined.

Supported by a consortium of Wales, LSE and Queen Mary DTCs and the Cardiff Centre of Law and Society, this event is free of charge for ESRC-funded students with the exception of travel.  Fifteen bursaries are also being made available for non-ESRC funded students with the kind support of the Journal of Law and Society and the Socio-Legal Studies Association.
