Dear Colleagues,

The Dickson Poon School of Law at King’s College London and the Faculty of Law at the University of Cambridge are delighted to announce a conference to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the Law Commissions Act 1965: “Fifty Years of the Law Commissions: The Dynamics of Law Reform Now, Then and Next”. The Conference has been organised in partnership with the Law Commission of England and Wales and the Scottish Law Commission. It will be held on 10-11 July 2015 at the United Kingdom Supreme Court.

The aim of the Conference is to reflect upon fifty years of institutional law reform in the United Kingdom, embracing the Law Commission of England and Wales and the Scottish Law Commission, as well as the Northern Ireland Law Commission. The significance of various specific reforms and proposals from the Commissions will be examined by academics, practitioners, judges and members of the Commissions.

The Conference features keynote addresses by Baroness Hale of Richmond, Deputy President of the United Kingdom Supreme Court, and Sir Kenneth Keith, Former Justice of the International Court of Justice. The conference has received generous funding from the Modern Law Review Seminar Series, the Society of Legal Scholars, the Dickson Poon School of Law at King’s College London, Hart Publishing and the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple.

The full programme is attached and booking is now available via this link http://estore.kcl.ac.uk/browse/extra_info.asp?compid=1&modid=2&deptid=17&catid=16&prodid=520. Any queries should be sent to the organisers Matthew Dyson, Shona Wilson Stark and I are the organisers) via lawreformconference@gmail.com.
