The Paisley Snail Conference - 25 & 26 May 2012

Who then in law is my neighbour? 

Donoghue v Stevenson: 80 years on.

An International Conference will be taking place on May 25 & 26, 2012, to mark the exact 80th anniversary of Lord Atkin’s judgment.  The University of the West of Scotland, Renfrewshire Law Centre, the Law Society of Scotland and the Faculty of Advocates, are hosting a Major International Conference in Paisley (where else) to examine, discuss and celebrate eighty years of the law of tort, negligence and delict.  What was the decision?  Is this most famous case (probably) of all time? Why was it so important? How has the law developed since then?  What does the future hold? And was it really a snail in the bottle?
