This week’s event announcement is below.
Tuesday, 10 April 2018, 7pm – 8.30pm
Research at the Public Law Project
Many public law academics will be familiar with the research work of the Public Law Project, including empirical studies such as The Dynamics of Judicial Review Litigation and The Value & Effects of Judicial Review: The Nature of Claims, their Outcomes and Consequences. To mark a renewed commitment to undertaking high-quality and independent research on the public law system, PLP will be launching a new 2020 Research Strategy, with an introduction by Professor Sir Jeffrey Jowell QC (Hon). This strategy sets, amongst other things, PLP’s immediate research priorities:
Other reports and outputs—including research briefings relating to the ongoing LASPO review and a report on strategic use of the law— will also be published. All reports will be available via the PLP’s website.
PLP has existing links with many valuable research partners, including with universities and organisations, and it is an organisational priority to strengthen further these relationships, through both formal and informal collaboration. PLP is also looking to develop new research relationships. We are therefore inviting public law researchers interested in any aspect of PLP’s research to join us for a research event on Tuesday April 10 2018 at 7pm – 8.30pm, when we will be kindly hosted by DAC Beachcroft (100 Fetter Lane, London, EC4A 1BN). The event will cover the PLP’s research aims and provide an opportunity for discussions over refreshments. The panel at the event will be:
Dr Joe Tomlinson
Jo Hickman, Director, Public Law Project
Alison Pickup, Legal Director, Public Law Project
Dr Lisa Vanhala, Reader in Human Rights, University College London
Varda Bondy, UK Administrative Justice Institute
Places for this evening are on a first come first served basis, so to RSVP please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend. The PLP team hopes you can join them.
Dr Joe Tomlinson is Lecturer in Public Law at the University of Sheffield and Research Director at the Public Law Project.
