SCOTLIN Conference

Each year SCOTLIN will organise a paper-based conference for fostering the debate and knowledge exchange on law and innovation

The annual SCOTLIN conference is structured a a 2-day forum for discussion. Each partner organisation and individual members will be encouraged to present their works, which can have an academic, educational, and practical relevance. Contributions might consist of draft papers or accepted papers.

The diversity in the participants will be ensured by means of Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion bursaries to incentivise participation of colleagues from underrepresented groups. Participants from each institution should be balanced in terms of gender and stage of career.​

Our 1st annual conference was held on 21st-22nd April 2022 at Stirling Highland Hotel, on the theme:

 "Sustainable Innovation, Law, and Policy in a Post-COVID World"

We are delighted to share some presentations of our speakers. They can be watched on our YouTube channel.
