London LVI Conference Postponed to 2021
It was with regret that the Conference Committee decided to postpone the Law Via the Internet Conference in London, originally scheduled for September 2020. The Committee intends to hold the conference on the 14 and 15th September 2021. The Call for Papers will be re-opened in due course and a further announcement will be made. We hope you are all keeping safe and we look forward to meeting up next year.
This year's conference is hosted jointly by the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, University of London and BAILII (British and Irish Legal Information Institute).
The Law Via the Internet conferences are organised under the auspices of the Free Access to Law Movement (FALM).
FALM is a consortium of institutions dedicated to providing free and open access to law around the world.
IALS and BAILII look forward to welcoming you to London in September 2021 for a programme dealing with some of the latest issues in legal information and technology in support of access to justice combined with the opportunity to see the legal heritage of London. The conference is in the planning stage so bookmark this page and revisit to get the latest information.
The conference itself will take place at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies in the heart of Bloomsbury near to the British Museum, on Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th September 2021. The conference reception and dinner will take place in the Old Hall of Lincoln's Inn on Tuesday 14th evening and we are planning to offer a 'Legal London Walk' prior to the conference on the afternoon of Monday 13th September. The meeting of the FALM (Free Access to Law Movement) Secretariat by invitation will take place on the morning of Monday 13th.
'BAILII has its 20th anniversary in December 2020 - come to London to help us celebrate!
Further information about conference themes will be issued early in the New Year together with a call for papers.
