From Shaunnagh Dorsett of the Faculty of Law, University of Technology, Sydney NSW, a call for registrations for the Legal History of the British Empire Conference (title: Law, Spaces, Cultures & Empire: Engagements & Legacies) to be held in Singapore, July 5-7, 2012. The keynote is Professor Catherine Hall of University College London. The plenary speaker is the Hon, Justice Andrew Phang of theSingapore Court of Appeal. In addition, there is a Blue Ribbon Panel consisting of our own John Weaver of McMaster University along with Martin Wiener of Rice University, and Bridget Brereton of University of the West Indies. For more info, see the conference website. While the call for papers is closed (a draft program will soon be available on the website,) registrations are open for non-presenters.
If you happen to be in the area this summer, or have travel money to spend, this looks like a good one.
