The W. G. Hart Legal Workshop is a major annual legal research event organised and hosted by the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies. Over the years this eponymous workshop series, subsidised by funds from the W. G. Hart Bequest, has focused on a wide range of comparative and international legal issues and topical interests.
The 2014 W.G. Hart Legal Workshop: Legal Education and Training and the Professions will be held from Monday 23 June 2014 to Tuesday 24 June 2014. Call for Papers now open.
The 2013 W. G. Hart Legal Workshop: The Constitution of the Public Sphere: the post-Leveson Landscape was held from Monday 24 June 2013 to Tuesday 25 June 2013.
The W.G. Hart Legal Workshops began in 1981, building on the success of previous Legal Workshops organised at the Institute with support from the Ford Foundation in the early years.
Collected papers from several of the annual Legal Workshops have been published and copies are catalogued and held in the IALS Global Law Library. The Institute plans to make selected past papers available to researchers in the IALS section of the SAS-Space institutional E-repository.
Video recordings of selected sessions from the 2010 Legal Workshop on Comparative Aspects on Constitutions: Law Reform and Theory and Practice are available on the web.
