The organisers Andreas Kokkinis, Federico Lupo-Pasini, and Clara Martins Pereira would like to invite full paper submissions to be presented at the 3rd Annual Conference on Financial Law and Regulation to take place at Durham Law School on the 4th and 5th of July 2024.

This conference is supported by the Society of Legal Scholars, Durham Law School and its Institute for Commercial & Corporate Law.

The purpose of the conference is to build on the success of the previous two conferences (at UCL and LSE) and gather the most influential scholars and practitioners in financial law in the UK and Ireland to discuss the evolution of the discipline and the recent legal and regulatory developments in the field. We envisage providing a platform for colleagues to present new work while also enabling lively debate and bringing together a wide range of perspectives, including from regulators and industry. A separate PhD section of the conference will take place on Saturday 6th July.

The conference will be organized over two days, it will be in person, and participation will be free of charge. The keynote speech will be held at the end of the first day (4th July) followed by dinner for all attendees, but delegates will be expected to cover their own travel and accommodation expenses.

There will be three panels on each day (six in total) with paper presentations, followed by comments made by invited speakers from both academia and practice, and time for open floor discussion.

We envisage the panels to cover the following themes:

  • International finance and EU financial law (including Brexit-related developments).
  • Recent developments in Fintech.
  • Sustainable finance including ethics and culture in the financial services sector.
  • Financial stability and developments in regulatory architecture.
  • Developments in the private law of finance, financial services litigation, and consumer protection.
  • New trends in corporate finance.

Those interested in presenting their work should submit it by email to clara.martins-pereira@durham.ac.uk by Monday 8th April. We are keen to consider unpublished papers (including those that have been submitted for publication but not accepted yet), as well as published articles and book chapters provided that they were published no earlier than the 1st of July 2023. At this point, we are inviting submissions from full-time academics, so PhD students should wait for the separate call for papers for the PhD segment of the conference.

We hope to get back to those whose papers are accepted within one to two weeks after the deadline for submission.
