Rethinking Law, Second Annual Law Student Colloquium at TCD

Colloquium call for papersAre you a Law student, undergraduate or postgraduate? Would you like to present a short paper or give a presentation on a legal topic of your choice at a colloquium at TCD on Saturday, 20 February 2010?

The second annual Law Student Colloquium, chaired by Mrs Justice Catherine McGuinness, President of the Law Reform Commission, will bring together law students to present and discuss their work under the general theme of Rethinking Law. Law students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, and researchers from all institutions, are invited to attend and participate. In a new and exciting development, there will be prizes for the best undergraduate papers.

For more information, check out the poster (pdf | jpg), visit the website, or send an email to the organisers as soon as possible. And, if you’re interested in participating, (of course you are, aren’t you?), please email a provisional title and a 400-500 word abstract of your proposed paper before 5pm, Friday 4 December 2009. Provide your name, educational status and institution in the e-mail, but provide the title and abstract in an attachment which should be anonymous.

The first event was a great success, and I’m sure that the second iteration will surpass it. So, go on, present your ideas on rethinking or challenging existing law, current understandings of the law, and received wisdom. It will be a lot of fun, as much for those who present the papers as for those of us whose preconceptions are challenged by the presentations.

Me in a hatHi there! Thanks for dropping by. I'm Eoin O'Dell, and this is my blog: Cearta.ie - the Irish for rights.

"Cearta" really is the Irish word for rights, so the title provides a good sense of the scope of this blog.

In general, I write here about private law, free speech, and cyber law; and, in particular, I write about Irish law and education policy.

Blogroll (or, really, a non-blogroll)

What I'd like for here is a simple widget that takes the list of feeds from my existing RSS reader and displays it here as a blogroll. Nothing fancy. I'd love a recommendation, if you have one.

I had built a blogroll here on my Google Reader RSS subscriptions. Google Reader produced a line of html for each RSS subscription category, each of which I pasted here. So I had a list of my subscriptions as my blogroll, organised by category, which updated whenever I edited Google Reader. Easy peasy. However, with the sad and unnecessary demise of that product, so also went this blogroll. Please take a moment to mourn Google Reader. If there's an RSS reader which provides a line of html for the list of subscriptions, or for each RSS subscription category as Google Reader did, I'd happily use that. So, as I've already begged, I'd love a recommendation, if you have one.

Meanwhile, please bear with me until I find a new RSS+Blogroll solution
