Organiser Surrey Centre for Law and Philosophy

Organiser of SCLP Double Seminar: Julie Dickson (Oxford) & Raff Donelson (Penn State)

The Surrey Centre for Law and Philosophy is committed to the idea that the study of law is deepened when grounded in philosophical principle, and philosophy is of greater benefit to society when relevant to pressing practical and legal issues. The Centre’s members consist not only of legal theorists, but also of lawyers with philosophical training and philosophers with interests in legal questions—all of whom are invested in an interdisciplinary and collaborative approach to research. Our home is the University of Surrey School of Law.
