The first St. James Conference became a conference on the partition of once Turkish-held territories in the Balkans, particularly Scutari. It took place on the 3rd of December 1912 during the First Balkan War.
The second St. James Conference (also Round-Table-Conference or London Conference) was a conference on the partition of Palestine. It began on 7 February 1939 and lasted until 17 March 1939 at St James's Palace in London.
The conference was led by Malcolm MacDonald, the British colonial secretary, but no progress was made as the Arab delegates even refused to sit at the same table with the Zionist representatives. The Jewish delegation was headed by Chaim Weizmann and the Arab delegation by followers of the Mufti of Jerusalem.  The meeting adjourned without result on 17 March 1939.
