Call for Papers: Open University’s Critical Legal Conference [Milton Keynes, Sep 6-8]: Submit by March 7

The 2018 Critical Legal Conference will be held on 6-8 September 2018 at The Open University in Milton Keynes, with a postgraduate workshop taking place on the afternoon of 5th September.


Drawing inspiration from the visions, strategies and conflicts that engendered the creation of Milton Keynes, as well as The Open University which was created at the same time and indelibly marks the history of the city, CLC 2018 will encompass the theme of regeneration.

In all instances of regeneration are tensions between new and existing socio-cultural visions and strategies, and the laws, regulations and forms of standardization that seek to govern the pace and nature of regeneration in a given space and time.

Equally there can often be a lack of legal attention and intervention where sometimes it is demanded, as well as forms of de-regulation that seek to attenuate the role and authority of law in favour of, for example, innovation.

Regeneration as a concept or material implementation indelibly marks the notion of what it means to be ‘always under construction’ and therefore the relations that process both creates and destroys.


Thursday, September 6, 2018 – 09:00 to Saturday, September 8, 2018 – 17:00


The Open University, Walton Hall, Milton Keynes, MK7 6AA
