Rethinking Law – Law Student Colloquium at TCD

Greek Symposium image.Are 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 in Trinity College Dublin? If so, then the third annual Law Student Colloquium is for you. Kindly sponsored by Allen & Overy, it will take place in the Graduates’ Memorial Building, (map) and the Law School, TCD (map), on Saturday 19 February 2011. Posts about the previous colloquia are here.

This conference brings together law students from Ireland and abroad to present papers on a wide variety of legal topics. The ethos of the Colloquium is one of re-thinking law. Papers which demonstrate originality, engage with current developments and challenge existing understandings of distinct legal issues are especially welcome.

Law students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, as well as researchers and recent graduates from all institutions, are invited to attend and participate. The Colloquium will consist of several panels on thematic areas of law with individual presentations of approximately fifteen minutes duration. An expert in the relevant area of law will chair each panel. There is some excellent advice here about the art of the conference paper; the article was written for US graduate students but it contains much that will be very helpful indeed for anyone interested in participating in the Colloquium. It will provide an excellent opportunity to explore current and future developments in law, to obtain feedback on your ideas and research, as well to experience presenting and participating at a law conference. There will be prizes for the best undergraduate presentations.

To submit an application to present a paper at the Colloquium, please use the online submission form before 3 December 2010 at 5pm. For answers to queries regarding submissions, please consult the FAQs, or email the Colloquium Committee. Finally, there are detailed regulations here (pdf).

It’s going to be interesting and lot of fun, honest! (And there’s a wine reception at the end). So, what are you waiting for? Fill in that form or send that email now! Indeed, it’s so much fun that even if you are not presenting a paper, you should turn up anyway and enjoy the papers and the fun. Attendance is free, but registration via email will be required.

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
