Call for Presenters: Edinburgh Legal Theory Seminar Series 2016/17

Following the success of last year’s call for presenters, the Edinburgh Legal Theory Research Group (LTRG) has decided to open a new call for presenters for our 2016/17 seminar series and we have allocated a number of slots in for this purpose. We aim to attract quality scholarship which may not yet be well-known to the members of the group. We particularly welcome submissions relating legal philosophy with other areas of philosophy (e.g. ethics & metaethics, political philosophy, philosophy of language, metaphysics, epistemology) and papers engaging with legal theory in a practical context (e.g. legal interpretation/construction or legal reasoning & argumentation). Papers focusing primarily on historical, biographical or exegetical matters are not encouraged. We encourage applications from women, ethnic minorities, disabled scholars, and members of other under-represented groups. read more...
