This conference series is an opportunity for PhD and early-career researchers from different disciplines to meet and share their valuable knowledge and research experiences. The conference provides an excellent opportunity for researchers to present their approaches to research designs, methodologies, methods and data analysis and in so doing to reflect and gain feedback on their studies. It also provides a forum in which research challenges can be explored and, hopefully, overcome.

The conference will include three keynote speakers, Professor Lisa Webley, University of Westminster London; Dr Nicole Janz, University of Cambridge; and Dr Fahri Karakas, University of East Anglia. Prof Webley will focus on “The Importance and Relevance of Method in Socio-Legal Research, Dr Janz will deliver a speech on “Transparency in Social Science Research”, and  Dr Fahri Karakas will conduct a workshop about “Professional Development”.

There will be free lunch and coffee breaks on the conference day.
