Kent Law School co-sponsoring Intensive Doctoral Week in Paris

Kent Law School is co-sponsoring an intensive week of workshops and teaching to be held in Paris this summer for doctoral law students from around the world.

Initiated in 2011, Intensive Doctoral Week (IDW) is co-organised annually by Sciences Po Law School and the Law and Political Science Doctoral School of Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense University.

Amongst those attending IDW this year, from 19-23 June, will be Kent PhD students Steve Crawford and Mia Tamarin. Both will be supported by Connal Parsley and Professor Maria Drakopoulou from Kent’s Centre for Critical Thought. Conceived as a teaching Lab, the aim of IDW is to enable candidates to present their research topics, discuss their work and benefit from the feedback and expertise of legal academics from across all of the participating institutions. The week comprises presentations, workshops, reading groups, panels, informal discussions in small groups and one-to-one meetings.

Kent Law School Lecturer Connal Parsley said: ‘This promises to be a highly engaging event, with sessions proposed on a “grassroots” basis in either French or English, including by Steve and Mia.’

The event will be hosted at Sciences Po Law School and is limited to a small number of PhD students from each of the sponsoring institutions (which also include the University of Turin, the Faculty of Law of Perugia, LSE Law, the School of Law at SOAS and Los Andes Law.)
