Hosted by the University of New England School of Law in Armidale NSW Australia, the 26th Annual Conference of the Australian and New Zealand Law and History Society will be held from Friday, 21 September to Sunday, 23 September 2007. The conference timing dovetails with the 2007 Australian Historical Association regional conference, hosted by the UNE School of Classics, History and Religion, to be held in Armidale from the evening of Sunday 23 September to Wednesday, 26 September.
The conference theme, 'Fenceposts in Legal History', encourages deep consideration of discrete or pivotal events, laws, issues or people (‘fenceposts’) as well as longer term analysis of historical periods or paradigms (connecting fenceposts as themes through time and place). This is intended to be a broad and inclusive theme bridging connections between law and history. Deadline for abstracts: 30 June 2007.
The invited keynote speaker is Professor Michael Lobban, School of Law, Queen Mary, University of London.
