Event details

Nottingham Law School is delighted to host the Inaugural Conference of the Partnership, LLP and LLC Law Academic Forum. The Forum aims to promote debate on partnership law and the law relating to other business vehicles which provide alternatives to the limited company, including LLPs and, in the US in particular, LLCs. It also aims to develop collaboration between academics researching and teaching in these areas of law, and with practitioners writing in these areas and researchers in connected areas such as company, employment, tax and commercial law.

The conference is generously supported by the Society of Legal Scholars and Nottingham Law School. Visit for further details of the conference (including abstracts of papers, speaker biographies, and information on accommodation).

Nottingham has plenty of Park and Ride services, a number of which are run alongside the city’s tram service - the parking provision is always generous, and you can expect a tram every ten minutes. We recommend using them, as parking in the centre can quickly become expensive. Visit the NET site for more information on the city’s Park and Ride services.

If you’re intending to park in the city centre, the closest (and largest) facilities to our City Campus are:
