Nottingham Trent University, UK

Call for Papers

The Partnership, LLP and LLC Law Forum is pleased to host its 4th Annual Conference in conjunction with the Centre for Business and Insolvency Law at Nottingham Law School. The Conference aims to bring together all those with an interest in partnerships, LLPs, LLCs and other alternative forms of business organisation in the UK and overseas.

The following speakers have provisionally confirmed:
· Professor Geoffrey Morse (University of Birmingham)
· Roderick I’Anson Banks (Partnership Counsel, 9 King’s Bench Walk)
· Jeremy Callman (Ten Old Square, Lincoln’s Inn)

Proposals are invited for further papers on any aspect of partnership, LLP and LLC law and practice, in the UK or overseas. The usual format is a 20 minute presentation accompanied by slides or a handout, followed by an opportunity for questions. However, proposals for panel discussions or other formats as welcome, as are proposals for joint papers.

Proposals should specify the i) names of the speaker(s), ii) their firm/university/other institutional affiliation, iii) their contact details including email address, and iv) the topic area(s). If the proposal is accepted, we will ask you for a title. Shortly before the conference, we will also require an abstract/summary of the paper, and any accompanying slides/handout. You do not need to supply a full copy of the paper.

It is intended that the Conference will be an in-person event, but if Covid-related restrictions make this impractical, it will be moved online as occurred in 2020. Proposals should specify whether the speaker would be prepared to present online if necessary, or only in person.

Proposals should be emailed with the subject line ‘Partnership Conference 2021 – call for papers’ to Dr Beatriz Gómez Fariñas at no later than 23 April 2021. Anyone wishing to make an informal inquiry ahead of submission of their proposal is welcome to do so.

We aim to confirm acceptance of papers by 14 May 2021. Conference registration will open in June and all speakers will need to register.

We look forward to receiving your proposals, and meeting you at the Conference.
