Deadlines: 15 April 2018 for abstracts, 15 June 2018 for full papers of accepted proposals.

Seminar topic: Parliament has a responsibility to monitor the extent to which the laws it has passed are implemented as intended and have the expected impact. Therefore, Post-Legislative Scrutiny is an important tool for increasing government accountability and is part of the oversight role of parliament. This academic seminar will explore all aspects of the role and ability of parliaments to conduct Post-Legislative Scrutiny, as well as the recommended methods and procedures for doing so. The seminar will result in the publication of a Special Issue of the European Journal on Law Reform on Post-Legislative Scrutiny, published by the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies of the University of London.
