International Widows Day

http://www.un.org/en/events/widowsday/

Tuesday, June 26 2018
 1 pm - 2 pm

Second Mental Disability Law Conference, University of Nottingham

Mental disability law (including both mental health law and mental capacity law) in the UK has come into its own in recent years, and there is now a wide range of researchers active in the field, in a variety of disciplines, along with people with lived experience.

This conference is sponsored jointly by the School of Law at the University of Nottingham, the Institute of Mental Health, and Making Waves and is endorsed by the Human Rights Law Centre of the University of Nottingham and the Society of Legal Scholars.

The conference will combine plenary and breakout sessions.  Plenaries confirmed at this time include:

What do we Want from a New Mental Health Act?

The Effects of Austerity

UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities: What is this ‘New Paradigm’?

It is expected that half the presenters at plenary sessions will be people with lived experience of mental health/mental disability services.  It is also hoped that at least one fifth of the delegates to the conference will have such lived experience.

The conference organisers invite offers of papers for the breakout sessions from scholars of any discipline relevant to law and governance relating to mental disability (including psychosocial disabilities/mental health problems, learning disabilities, and dementia and related disorders of old age). There is no restriction on methodology:  papers may be empirical, policy-centred, historical, analytic, traditional legal, or theoretical, in approach.  

A pre-conferences on 25 June will be held for student delegates and early career researchers.  Details about the preconference are available from Amanda Keeling (a.keeling@leeds.ac.uk).  Abstracts for the pre-conference are not required; students are encouraged to submit offers of papers for the main conference. 

All attendees (including presenters in the breakout sessions) must register for the conference and pay the required attendance fee.  Reduced rates are available for service users and student delegates.  

Offers of papers should be sent to Peter Bartlett (peter.bartlett@nottingham.ac.uk) on the attached form.  Deadline for submission of offers of papers is 01 May 2018.

Delegates may register for the conference by sending the attached form to Karen Sugars (Karen.Sugars@nottshc.nhs.uk).
