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 ANU School of Philosophy, and friends and colleagues of both.
Sign up to the ANU Law and Philosphy Forum mailing list to keep up-to-date with upcoming events.
