CFP: Cambridge Doctoral Workshop in Legal Theory 2016 (DL: 25.04)

The second edition of the Cambridge Doctoral Workshop in Legal Theory will be held on 24 August 2016 at the Faculty of Law of the University of Cambridge. We welcome abstracts that address legal questions from a theoretical, especially philosophical, perspective.

Our keynote speaker is Professor John Tasioulas, Director at the Yeoh Tiong Lay Centre for Politics, Philosophy, and Law, The Dickson Poon School of Law, King’s College London.

The workshop is primarily for research students and for those who have received their doctoral degree less than two years ago.

Even though the workshop does not have a particular theme, abstracts will be chosen for presentation so as to create thematically coherent panels.

Unfortunately, we cannot offer subsidies for the presenters’ travel and accommodation costs.

Please send your abstract of less than 500 words and your CV to John Adenitire ( by April 25th, 2016. The chosen presenters are expected to send their full papers by July 25th, 2016 so that there is sufficient time to circulate the papers to the participants. The length of the paper should not exceed 8,000 words (including footnotes).

Queries can be addressed to John Adenitire (

Organisers: John Adenitire, Raffael Fasel, Ya Lan Chang.
