An annual programme of seminars is run by the Society for Court Studies in which new work in the field is presented and discussed. These take place in London on weekday evenings, at 6 p.m. at New York University, 6 Bedford Square, London, WC1B 3RA, room 102. Refreshments, including wine, are served.

The seminars are free (except the guest lecture) and open to everyone. For further details, please contact the Seminar Secretaries, Jo Tinworth () and Nicola Clark (). Historians interested in giving a seminar paper to the Society should contact the Seminar Secretaries as well.
