Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that I am writing to invite you to the King’s Transnational Law Summit 2018 (KTLS18), one of the most widely anticipated events in The Dickson Poon School of Law’s history.

The Summit takes place at a crucial moment of deepening domestic, regional and global political change. Inspired by the political philosopher Hannah Arendt’s book ‘The Human Condition’, which turns 60 this year, the Summit will evolve around the theme of The New Human Condition: Creating Justice for Our Future.

This inaugural Summit will place justice at the centre of a wider interdisciplinary conversation about democratic politics, socio-economic inequality, health equity and climate change in a volatile world. It is our hope to develop KTLS18 into a sustainable platform for an ongoing collaboration on some of the most important challenges we face today.

I am delighted to report that in addition to a world-leading group of legal experts, we will also be joined by four exceptional Keynote Speakers:

  • Shirin Ebadi, Nobel Peace Prize Winner, 2003
  • Richard Wilkinson, Honorary Visiting Professor, University of York
  • Susanne Baer, Justice of the First Senate, The Federal Constitutional Court (Germany)
  • Dipesh Chakrabarty, Professor, University of Chicago Department of History

We would like to extend to you an early opportunity to register for KTLS18. You will have the option to join us for the whole Summit or for a shorter period. To view our exciting programme of events, please visit and follow @KCL_Law on Twitter for #KTLS18 updates.
