2017 Call For Abstracts

Postgraduate Conference

30th & 31st March 2017

Aberystwyth Law School

 “The Interwoven Relationship of Law and Media”

Aberystwyth Law School (formerly known as the Department of Law and Criminology) is pleased to announce its 2017 Conference focusing on the correlation between law and media.

How does media relate to your existing research? Media of all types such as film, television, music, publishing, multimedia, literary sources and visual sources have a growing presence in our legal community and in our society in general. Our aim is to explore the relationship between law and media and determine if they can support each other or is one harmful to the other?

Possible issues to be addressed include:

  • How do the law and media interact?
  • How does the law respond to contemporary forms of media such as YouTube and other forms of social media?
  • How is law portrayed by the media?
  • Does the law adequately reflect this ever-changing discipline?
  • Does the law adequately address the legal issues arising from different types of media?

Organised by postgraduate students, the Conference aims to enhance research, learning and discussion as well as to provide networking opportunities in a friendly and supportive environment.

We welcome submissions from all disciplines, forums and/ or platforms dealing with any aspect of the law’s relationship with media. As such inter/trans and multidisciplinary approaches, and similarly business and/or academic perspectives are welcome.
