This is a specific conference devoted to mental disability law (including issues relating to mental health/psychosocial disability, learning disability, disabilities associated with old age and mental capacity). The target audience is academics, practitioners, policymakers, advocates and people with lived experience. Our aim is that people with lived experience will constitute at least half of the plenary speakers, and one fifth of the people attending.
The Nottingham 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.
All the details about the conference including: keynote speakers, cost, how to submit a paper, accommodation and how to register to attend are on the Events page at the Institute of Mental Health website: www.institutemh.org.uk/events
