Call for Papers

A symposium will be held at De Montfort University, Leicester, United Kingdom. This symposium explores the relationship of horses, society and the law across many positions, including, for instance, the use of horses in the rehabilitation of juvenile and adult criminal offenders, the role of the horse in national identity, modern popular culture and cultural heritage, in sport, and in leisure and recreation activities, and in the preservation of public access to bridle paths and other green common areas.

We are inviting paper abstracts of 250-300 words to be submitted for inclusion in our Symposium to be held at De Montfort University. There will be an edited edition of Contemporary Issues in Law to publish selected papers (subject to the usual peer review process) from the conference.  

Confirmed Keynote Speakers

Sophie Wells OBE - Paralympics London and Paralympics Rio Equestrian Gold Medallist

Dr Georgina Cossman - LOCOG Staff Member and National Technical Official at the Rio Paralympics
