Bringing together researchers who share an interest in foundational questions about the law
Law and Philosophy Network
The Law and Philosophy Network is dedicated to research on foundational questions about the law.
The Network fosters an interdisciplinary approach to these questions, drawing on members’ expertise in various areas of law, philosophy, as well as cognate disciplines. Our ultimate purpose is practical: to help us confront key legal and political challenges of our age, and promote modes of governance that respect equality, freedom and respect for diverse forms of human flourishing.
The Forum organises a seminar series, which is co-sponsored by Hart Publishing, The School of Law and the Department of Philosophy. It encourages joint co-supervision of PhD students by staff based in Law and Philosophy.
