New Perspectives on Jurisdiction and the Criminal Law (W G Hart Legal Workshop 2020) Call for Papers until 9 December 2019!

Published 4 days, 2 hours ago

In recent years there have been significant challenges to traditional concepts of jurisdiction in the criminal law, for example due to the increasing complexity of certain financial transactions and the advent of technologies like cryptocurrencies. The aim of the workshop is to bring together practitioners and academics to reflect on the challenges to concepts of jurisdiction and to stimulate new perspectives on jurisdiction and the criminal law.

Contributions are invited on the following themes:

  • The ambit of the criminal law
  • Jurisdictional conflicts
  • Public/private relationships in the investigation and prosecution of transborder crime
  • The investigative powers of the state
  • Cyberspace and territorial sovereignty
  • Theorising the territorial state

Papers are welcome on any of these themes. Abstracts of approximately 300 words and a short speaker biography should be submitted to the Academic Directors at the following e-mail address (hartconference2020@glasgow.ac.uk) by 9 December 2019. Successful applicants will be informed by early January 2020, and full versions of the accepted papers will be due for submission by 15th May 2020.
Contributions from early career researchers will be particularly welcomed and two ECR submissions will be integrated into the plenary sessions. It is our intention that a selection of the presented papers will be published as an edited collection following the workshop.

Early career researchers and postgraduates will have discounted rates for the conference registration fee.
