9.00AM to 5.00PM Conference
  • Professor Dvora Yanow, Wageningen University, The Netherlands

In the era of ‘post-truth’ and electoral outcomes that don’t follow the seductions of quantification (Merry 2016), it might be appropriate to return to discussions of the ‘event’ in the Derridean sense —that which always exceeds calculation and prediction (Derrida 2007).

This list of books and films is an expression of our Law School’s values and a reminder that a well-rounded education does not come solely from prescribed texts and journals. Reading for pleasure, and broadening one's world view, can be a wonderful supplement to the benefits that an education and a career in the law provides.

Keally McBride
12.30PM to 2.00PM Seminar
  • Professor Keally McBride, University of San Francisco

One of the most interesting areas of scholarship in recent years has been the relationship between colonialism and the rule of law.  Several important books have used the materials of legal history to interrogate the meaning, development, and effects of the rule of law in colonial and post colonial societies.
