Event Details

The third event of the West Midlands Doctoral Legal Network (WMLDN) will take place on 30 April 2019. All WMLDN Members are welcome to join us for the day, which includes lunch, at Wolverhampton Law School (WLS). We are also pleased to invite all of our guests to visit the First 100 Years Artwork exhibit, honouring the first hundred years of women in law. The exhibition will be on display in the Courtroom at WLS.

The theme of the event is “Celebrating Women in Law.” It has been 100 years since the 1919 Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act, which allowed women in the UK to enter the legal profession (to qualify as barristers or solicitors). In light of the theme we will be hosting a number of PhD researchers, who will present their areas of expertise through the lens of the women in their respective fields. Following the set of PhD talks, we will continue the conversation with a select group of commissioning Editors in Law, who will share their advice on “How to Publish your First Research Monograph.” Such publications are frequently based on successfully defended PhD theses.
