The Law and Society Annual Meeting brings together thousands of scholars from around the world. At the meetings, participants exchange ideas in many formats, from paper presentations, to book discussions, and roundtables to freely debate ideas. Each meeting also includes a few general sessions, where everyone gathers to hear presentations of new ideas and recent work of leaders in the field. Participants usually find that the meetings provide an unparalleled opportunity for informal discussions across disciplines and theoretical traditions as well as more traditional formal exchanges. The substantial level of international participation also facilitates cross-national research connections and expanded research perspectives. Annual Meetings are open to members and non-members of the Association. Registration is required.
