Comparative Law Discussion Group: 'Gender in Law: the Enduring Effects of State Socialism'

On 20 November, 12:40-1:50pm in the Moot Court Room of the Faculty of Law, Barbara Havelková will be presenting a paper and leading discussion on: "Gender in Law: the Enduring Effects of State Socialism".

Barbara Havelkova is the Herchel Smith Temporary Lecturer and Fellow in Law at Emmanuel College. Barbara's research and teaching interests include EU law, human rights and equality law, labour law and gender legal studies.

The Comparative Law Discussion Group group meet a few times a term to discuss comparative research and methodology. This year the group is expanding a little to welcome LLMs and particularly interested undergraduates in addition to the PhD students and faculty members who attend. It is not a teaching forum, its focus is on substantive research and research methodology. There are substantive presentations at points in the year, led by established academics, but for the rest of the year everyone is encouraged to present comparative work in progress and discuss it with the group. All are welcome here is no need to book.
