Welcome

Welcome to the website for Living with the Law: Society and Legal Disputes c. 1200-1700, a conference hosted by the St Andrews Institute of Legal and Constitutional Research. Here you will be able to register for the conference, view the conference programme and keep up to date with relevant news and information.

The aim of this conference is to consider the relationship between law and the society within which it operated. The conference will take an interdisciplinary approach to this topic and papers on law from the perspectives of legal history, constitutionalism, literature, and social history are encouraged.

We hope to bring together postgraduate students, early-career researchers and established academics (including two main speakers) who are working in the field of legal history. The aim is to allow delegates to discuss their work with other historians and legal scholars, and to make connections and draw inspiration from the broad range of research that is presented.

We are grateful for the generous financial support provided by PIMIC, the Saint Andrews Institute of Mediaeval Studies, and the Institute of Legal and Constitutional Research.
