The Australian and New Zealand Law and History Society is comprised of scholars working in different disciplines who share an interest in the connections between law and history. The theme of this year's conference is Landmarks in Legal History. This of course is a broad theme which is designed to enable scholars from all periods and places to talk about individuals, cases, statutes, events, enquiries or the establishment of institutions and the ending of others etc that were significant in one way or another in particular jurisdictions or more widely.
The conference will not be limited to this theme, however, and proposals of papers are also welcome on any area of legal history. Acceptance is contingent on the ability of the organisers to place papers in appropriate panels. Late registrations will be accepted at the discretion of the organisers, but that will depend on the availability of the limited space at our venues. The conference will be held at the Faculty of Law, University of Tasmania at Hobart.
Each paper will be allotted a total of 30 minutes; it is expected that most papers will be delivered in approximately 20 minutes, with the remaining time left free for questions and discussion. Normally there will be three papers in an hour and half session. The deadline for submission is 31 August 2006.
Abstracts of 300 words may be submitted by email, or by post to the conference convenor:
