We explore major issues in law and politics through the lens of philosophy. Our research ranges from more abstract questions, such as those concerning the foundations of freedom and equality, to more applied ones, concerning, for example, the impact of AI or the abuse of human rights.
The Centre brings together faculty members, visitors, as well as postgraduate and undergraduate students, from various departments in the College. It is also actively involved in a number of collaborations with other institutions around the world.
Our aim is to illuminate the most pressing questions of our time through the application of rigorous interdisciplinary thought, and to engage policymakers and the wider public in an ongoing conversation on how to create a better society.
An inspiring place to study
We have a reputation as one of the world’s leading centres for the study of legal and political philosophy. Our students can experience not only the latest ideas from King’s researchers, but also the wide range of perspectives from our visiting speakers.
The LLB Politics, Philosophy & Law is unique in the UK. It’s a qualifying law degree that also allows students to choose from modules in philosophy and political economy.
