LLM Students of UCL Will Host a Conference on ‘Current Issues in Restitution’

Students of the University College London (UCL) currently taking the Faculty of Law's LLM module in ‘Restitution of Unjust Enrichment’ are inviting attendees to the conference they organized entitled 'Current Issues in Restitution.'

The conference is scheduled on 24 March 2018, Saturday, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at the Institute of Education (IOE), 20 Bedford Way, Room 728. Any student taking up their LLB and those in their postgraduate degrees (including LLM/PhD/BPTC/LPC), who are interested in this field of law are invited to attend. It is the objective of the event to let attending students research on their chosen issues and present it before their peers.

This event will be a forum that will consider different developments in the area of restitution including related cases that have reached the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals. One good example of a case to be considered in the conference is the Investment Trust Companies (in liquidation) v HMRC (2017) and the controversial decision given by the courts, which effectively reversed the earlier ruling in Menelaou v Bank of Cyprus (2015).

It is also the aim of the conference organizers to promote intense discussion on a range of legal topics set in a collegiate and friendly environment. A guest speaker for the event will be announced at a later date. Those intending to attend and speak during the event are requested to e-mail the organizers a 500-word abstract at UCL.restitution.conference@gmail.com by Friday 9 February, 5:00 pm.  Thereafter, speakers are encouraged to compose what they will present in a written paper between 2000 to 6000 words to be submitted before 9 March 2019 at 5:00 pm.

It should be noted that speaking before the audience is not mandatory for participation.
