UK Administrative Justice Institute New Voices Workshop

The event on 1 September was a workshop hosted by the University of Sheffield and supported by the UK Administrative Justice Institute. It was attended by around twenty guests, roughly divided between established, leading researchers in administrative justice, and early career researchers in administrative justice. The event was also attended by representatives from HM Courts and Tribunals Service. The purpose of the event was to provide early career researchers in administrative justice with an opportunity to present their work to—and receive comments from—an audience of more established researchers. From the papers at the conference, some will be published in a themed issue of the Journal of Social Security Law. Other papers are already set for a range of journals. The group that attended the event are part of the UKAJI ECR Network, and hopefully more events like this one will be held in the future. Dr Zach Richards, from Keele University, won the UKAJI New Voices prize for the best paper.

I was very pleased to be supported by UKAJI to organise this event. I am also pleased that the ECR contributors found the event fun and rewarding.
