Each year MA and PhD students are invited from Bergen and several UK universities to present their research to their peers, gaining feedback, experience in writing papers and public speaking and getting the opportunity to meet students at the equivalent academic stage.

The theme of the 2018 conference is "Norms, Laws and Literature".

The academic programme will take place on the 9th to the 12th of April at the University of Bergen. The location for all three days is the Law Faculty (Jusbygget, Dragefjellet, Magnus Lagabøtes plass 1), Auditorium 3.

On Thursday the 12th April there will be an excursion to Voss to take in the medieval delights the town has to offer.

All are welcome to listen to the papers and participate in the discussion free of charge. For registration or more information please contact: helen.leslie@uib.no.
