April is a mini-conference-season for law in the UK, with a number of big ones taking place – I’m due to be attending two and aware of another. Probably the biggest (but not in my diary, alas) is the Socio-Legal Studies Association, meeting in Leicester in the first week of the month. Up in Edinburgh, as previously blogged, SCRIPT-ed’s Governance of New Technologies conference is almost here. And finally, down in Winchester, BILETA meets for its annual conference on 22nd/23rd April, with a draft programme showing that there is a wide range of topics due to be covered. Coverage of last year’s BILETA conference is available through my (too lengthy) posts tagged bileta2008. I hope to do the same this year.

The big event in Ireland this month was the third annual Legal Education Symposium, held this year at UCD. Eoin O’Dell’s even more detailed reports are available at his blog, cearta.ie.
