Event Details

A workshop sponsored by the Centre for Research on Law, Equality and Diversity (LEAD) and the Centre for Law and Society in a Global Context (CLSGC)

Debates about the nature of legal reasoning tend to present legal reasoning as monolithic - as either objective and based on fundamental principles and shared values or as political and based on the interests of a dominant class. Neither side of this debate accounts for – or indeed allows for the possibility of – judicial diversity. What are the consequences for legal reasoning when decision-makers include the previously marginalised, when values are heterogeneous and when fundamental principles are contested from a range of perspectives? Contributors to this workshop will consider legal reasoning in the hands of a diverse judiciary and in response to multivocal claims for recognition and political and social inclusion.
