Litigating Women: Negotiating Justice in Courts of Law, c.1100 - c.1750

As part of our AHRC-funded collaborative project 'Women Negotiating the Boundaries of Justice: Britain and Ireland, c. 1100-c.1750', and in conjunction with Swansea University's 11th annual 'Symposium by the Sea', this two-day event explored women's access to justice and use of the lawcourts in Britain and Continental Europe in the medieval and early modern periods.
