Dear Colleagues,

This is the Second Circular of the 24th Forum of Young Legal Historians, to be held at the University of Warsaw, Poland, between 14 and 17 June 2018.

First and foremost we would like to inform you that the President of  Warsaw, Mrs. Hanna Gronkiewicz–Waltz has graciously granted her honorary patronage to our Forum. We are grateful to the Warsaw authorities for this sign of  appreciation of  the international community of  young legal historians.

Moreover, the First Circular has met with a great interest of  our community and we have received numerous queries concerning the organisational details. This Second Circular aims to answer at least some of them.

The deadline for the abstract submission has been prolonged until 28 February 2018. Abstracts should contain no more than 200 words.

The Programme

At the moment we are only able to present a preliminary information concerning the Forum Programme. The detailed Programme shall be available on Forum website shortly after the closing date for abstract submissions.

The registration and opening session will take place on the 14th of June 2018 in the afternoon. There are four main sessions planned during the Forum (two for each day). The sessions shall be grouped according to the chronological and thematic order.


The organisers have booked rooms and negotiated special rates for Forum participants in several hotels, ranging from exclusive to tourist class, in the vicinity of the University of Warsaw. Information, links and registration forms are available on the Forum website ( accomodationguidelines/). The participants are encouraged to book early in order to be sure of getting the accommodation of their choice as the number of pre-booked rooms is limited.
