The Critical Legal Conference will hold a doctoral workshop on the afternoon of Wednesday 5 September. This event immediately precedes the Critical Legal Conference running 6 - 8 September 2018 in Milton Keynes. Participants in the Workshop are encouraged to attend the main conference following the Workshop.

The Workshop is an excellent opportunity for doctoral students to discuss their work with other research students in an informal and supportive environment. Students at any stage of their doctoral career, whether in their first year or very close to submitting, are urged to apply.

The workshop will be led by two invited participants, and further details about the programme will follow shortly.
