London LVI Conference Postponed
We hope you are all keeping safe and well. The Conference Committee is reconsidering dates for the Law Via the Internet Conference in London. It now seems likely, with the recent resurgence of the virus, that international travel may still be restricted or impossible for some in September. We would dearly like to welcome you to London in person. The Committee is exploring a further postponement and the possibility of a hybrid conference to enable different forms of participation. A further announcement will be made and a Call for Papers will be opened in due course.
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 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 itself will take place at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies in the heart of Bloomsbury near to the British Museum. We are planning to offer a 'Legal London Walk' on the day before the conference. The meeting of the FALM (Free Access to Law Movement) Secretariat by invitation will also take place on that day.
'BAILII recently had its 20th anniversary - we hope you will be able to come to London to help us celebrate!
Further information about conference themes will be issued together with a call for papers.
