About the Speaker

Professor Veitch writes and teaches in the areas of legal, social and political theory. Educated in Scotland he has worked at universities in Australia and the United Kingdom, and was formerly Professor of Jurisprudence at the University of Glasgow. He has held visiting academic positions in South Africa, New Zealand, Belgium and France.

Professor Veitch's area of research is jurisprudence broadly defined, and his work draws on historical, philosophical and sociological insights into law and legal institutions. More specifically it has dealt with the politics of domestic and international law; critical aspects of legal reasoning; the role of law in processes of transition and its bearing on reconciliation and memory; and the relations between legal concepts and political economy.

He is the author of numerous books, articles and chapters. His most recent monograph analysed the ways in which contemporary law and legal institutions organise global irresponsibility, and was the subject of a book symposium in the Australian Journal of Legal Philosophy. His first monograph won of the European Award for Legal Theory.

Current research projects include a historical investigation into the changing nature of the legal obligation.
