Convene Seminars

Research is the process of going up alleys to see if they are blind.

Marston Bates

LSE Law is one of the world’s leading research institutions. Join us to talk about our current work, and to discuss topical legal issues with home and invited speakers. Our seminars assume no prior knowledge of technical or specialist issues, all you need is your sense of enquiry. All seminars begin with a presentation followed by a Q&A. Where a paper is available, you will find the link in the relevant listing.

Our Convene events fall into three types:

Seminar: from social theory and human rights to the post-Brexit legal landscape and FinTech, we’ve got you covered. LSE experts and invited speakers present their recent work and work-in-progress.

Showcase: discussions with LSE Law experts on the main issues, topics and challenges in their areas of interest, from arbitration to tax law and everything in between.

Masterclasses: A special series of lectures by our Visiting Professors in Practice and other experts, applying their expertise to analyse contemporary legal issues in depth.

** please note: seminars normally take place on Tuesdays 17.30-19.00 BST **
