The ANU Law and Philosophy Forum is delighted to announce its sixth meeting in 2021: a work-in-progress seminar with Tony Zhou, on ‘The concept of harm’. All are welcome to attend.

Tony Zhou is a doctoral candidate in Law at Corpus Christi College, the University of Cambridge. He was educated at the University of Queensland, and has an LLM from the University of Cambridge. Tony’s research spans private law, tort law theory, and moral philosophy. His PhD focuses on whether exposure to risks of physical injury constitute harm. Tony’s doctoral supervisors and advisors are Emeritus Professor Peter Cane, FBA, Dr Jeff Skopek, and Dr Stephen John. Tony will talk to the ANU Law and Philosophy Forum about the concept of harm, the extent to which risks can count as harms, and implications for legal duties.

The ANU Law and Philosophy Forum is an interdisciplinary group focused on issues spanning law and philosophy.

Its core purpose is to promote research, discussion, and exchanges on various topics in law and philosophy, covering aspects of both private law and public law, and issues within both legal and political philosophy.

The Forum hosts guest speakers, holds workshops, and discusses recent scholarship of note in the field. Meetings are open to faculty members and research students from ANU College of Law and the School of Philosophy, and friends and colleagues of both.
