Centre for Law and Philosophy

Durham Centre for Law and Philosophy

The centre for law and philosophy was formally established in March 2020 and builds on the Law School's history of research in this area. It provides a space to discuss ideas and develop research projects in legal theory broadly conceived, such as in general jurisprudence, critical legal theory, feminist legal theory, private law theory, international law theory, etc. – as well as associated subjects within moral and political philosophy. It is inclusive in the approaches it supports and is open to new directions in legal theory. It welcomes scholars within and beyond the university to participate in regular lectures, paper presentations, and pre-read work-in-progress sessions. Our annual Durham Lecture in Legal Philosophy invites established and influential speakers who write in this area, is open to all, and serves as our closing session for the academic year. Please e-mail us to subscribe to our mailing list.
