‘Current Legal Challenges and Innovation’
With the support of the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) Research Services, the School of Law of UCLan Cyprus is pleased to announce its inaugural PGR conference 2019 which will take place on Friday 21st June 2019.
The theme of the conference, ‘Current Legal Challenges and Innovation’, aims to create a forum of contemporary legal discussions by bringing together postgraduate research students and early career scholars from various domestic and international legal backgrounds with a focus on legal and related studies. The conference aims to enhance students’ learning experiences by providing them with the opportunity to develop their presentation skills, showcase their research and receive feedback from both fellow postgraduate research students and academic specialists. During the event, PGR students will also have the opportunity to attend various plenary sessions on career development and publishing as well as sessions on how to prepare for the viva.
The programme of the conference is available here.
