The law and theory workshop is a fortnightly gathering of students, PhDs, postdocs and staff, who meet to discuss select essays and book chapters on key legal and theoretical issues. Each semester is organised around a particular thematic focus, which is looked at from a range of critical perspectives.
The workshop provides a relaxed space for open discussion and exchange. As much as it is an intellectual exercise for members of the institute, it is also designed as an opportunity for students to gain exposure to advanced critical reading and thinking in law and theory.
