Call for abstracts: Intersections of Private Law

A biennial colloquium at the University of Sydney Law School.

Sydney Law School is pleased to announce the third Intersections of Private Law Colloquium to be held in-person on 5-6 April 2024. We are delighted to invite you to submit an abstract for the Colloquium.

Last held in 2019 before the pandemic, Intersections of Private Law is a colloquium series that aims to explore the boundaries, overlaps and complementary operation of fields of private law with each other and externally. There is much to be explored and discussed in how different fields of private law interact with each other – for example, contract law with tort or equitable principles, tort with unjust enrichment – and with other fields of law, such as criminal law, corporate law and public law. Even within one field of private law, there are overlaps and distinctions to be drawn or eradicated – for example, in tort law, trespass and nuisance, intentional wrongdoing and negligence. Interdisciplinary perspectives provide another source of intersection. The Intersections of Private Law colloquium series provides an opportunity for scholars from Australia and overseas to explore these and other overlaps and distinctions within and at the boundaries of private law.

The following invited speakers will participate in the Colloquium:

  • Matthew Dyson, Professor of Civil and Criminal Law, Faculty of Law, University of Oxford;
  • Jodi Gardner, Brian Coote Chair in Private Law, Faculty of Law, University of Auckland;
  • Donal Nolan, Professor of Private Law, Faculty of Law, University of Oxford.

Abstracts should be submitted by email to intersectionsofprivatelaw@gmail.com. Abstracts should be no more than 500 words long. The due date for abstracts is 5 February 2024, although earlier submissions are welcome. Submissions from early career researchers and full drafts are warmly encouraged.

We will send notification of acceptance no later than 19 February 2024. We are happy to distribute any full drafts that we receive two weeks before the Colloquium.

There will be a small registration fee for confirmed participants to cover catering costs. There is a separate modest price for the colloquium dinner, which will be held on 5 April 2024.

Yours sincerely
