W.G. Hart Legal Workshop

The Institute of Advanced Legal Studies has made the difficult decision to postpone the W.G. Hart Legal Workshop 2020 until April 2021 (new date to be announced). We have made this decision in response to the evolving global public health challenge caused by COVID-19, and are following government advice about avoiding large gatherings of people. We apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience caused.

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.

W.G. Hart Legal Workshop 2020: New Perspectives on Jurisdiction and the Criminal Law (postponed until 2021 date to be announced) 

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 has made selected past papers available to researchers in the IALS section of the SAS-Space institutional E-repository.
