About MSPL

MSPL is a world-leading forum for scholars with research and/or teaching interests in property law, attracting an international body of delegates. The conference series has its origins in the biennial conference first held by the University of Reading in 1996. Those conferences gave rise to the book, Modern Studies in Property Law which, since 2001, has published refereed papers from the conference.  After the conference celebrated its 10th anniversary at the University of Reading in 2006, it has been held at Queens’ College, Cambridge (2008), New College, Oxford (2010), the University of Southampton (2012), and the University of Liverpool (2014).

MSPL 2016

MSPL aims to facilitate discussion and mentoring opportunities for those researching and teaching property law. The MSPL conference attracts a large number of delegates: some presenting, but others learning and networking.

 The 2016 event will feature a new series of ‘How to’ discussions (such as how to publish in property law, how to have impact, how to get research funding, how to teach property law) designed to support ongoing career development for those working in property law.
