University of Warwick Summer Law School

Applications are welcomed for the summer school organized by Warwick Law School from 5 to 10 July 2010. The summer school will bring together doctoral students from law, women's studies,  politics, sociology and anthropology (or appropriate disciplinary backgrounds) working on interdisciplinary gender and law issues in relation to development. Five fully funded residential places are offered for doctoral students studying in the UK with interests in this area who would like to contribute to the school..

The nucleus of the Summer School will be provided by MPhil/doctoral students at SEARCWL, UZ and Warwick University (although a limited number of doctoral students presently studying in the UK with interests in this area are also invited).

The focus for the Summer School is on developing methodologies and analytical frameworks for research on gender and law within diverse plural legal contexts with particular reference to Southern post colonial and European multicultural societies. It is research student focused and seeks to expand the skills of doctoral researchers in the area of gender and law. It will lay the foundation for future networking and collaboration. A 
number of leading external contributors, including international scholars from Africa, Norway and the UK with expertise in the area will be present and make contributions.

The applicants need to submit following documents:
1. Resume of the academic background
2. Outline of your present research
3. Indication of how you would like to contribute

Application documents need to be sent by 12 March 2010 to Jenny Wilson:
