The Board of Social and Legal Studies would like to remind readers of the journal that it is able to offer financial support to people organising a workshop or conference on a theme which would be of interest to readers of Social and Legal Studies. Proposals are considered at our board meetings in February, June and September of each year. Colleagues wishing to apply for funds should contact Carl Stychin ( with an outline of the conference theme and goals, the papers being given and details of the financial support requested. The Board is able to make contributions in the region of £500-1000.

Social & Legal Studies is a leading international journal, publishing progressive, interdisciplinary and critical approaches to socio-legal study. The journal is committed to feminist, post-colonial and socialist economic perspectives to the study of law. It offers an intellectual space where diverse traditions and critical approaches within legal study meet, and aims to promote greater understanding of work being carried out in less academically dominant countries.

Recently, in additon to its review section the journal has developed an innovative Debates & Dialogue section which allows more direct and immediate engagement between authors.

" is clear that the editors have worked hard to achieve their aims... However, the value of this journal goes beyond achieving these goals. Its real value lies in the quality, level, and kind of material being published within it." Times Higher Education Supplement
