Law and Governance in Britain is the sixth conference on this general theme to be held at Western University, and marks the tenth anniversary of the series. The theme of the conference is intentionally expansive; the speakers have been asked simply to talk about whatever aspect of their research interests them most at the time.

Over the course of two days we will hear from an international group of British historians who explore relationships between the state and its subjects. The range of topics is wide and their intersections complex and varied. The conference will open with a roundtable on the work and career of J.M. Beattie, a pioneering scholar in the field of criminal justice history. His work on policing, trial, and punishment has been truly ground breaking. Criminal justice features in a number of subsequent panels as well, but the history of the emotions is also represented and we conclude with a panel which considers governance much more broadly.
