The Society of Legal Scholars (SLS) is the learned society for those who teach law in a university or similar institution or who are otherwise engaged in legal scholarship. As of beginning of 2013 the SLS had over 2900 members consisting of academic and practising lawyers in a wide variety of subject areas. The SLS was founded in 1908 and has charitable status. For more information on the SLS please read on.
The Society is delighted to announce that Katja LH Samuel is the winner of the Peter Birks Book Prizes for Outstanding Legal Scholarship (2015) for The OIC, the UN, and Counter-Terrorism Law-Making: Conflicting or Cooperative Legal Orders?
