The GLT Colloquium

The Glasgow Legal Theory Colloquium invites ambitious new work in legal and political philosophy broadly construed by established and more junior scholars from the UK and abroad. The Colloquium also welcomes doctrinal work which contains notable theoretical insights. Typically sessions last 2 hours and the format is pre-read, with an eye to in-depth exchange with the academics and graduate researchers of the Glasgow community. On occasion, and depending on the nature of the invited contribution, a discussant may be assigned.
