Legal philosophy success in global ranking

Posted on 15/12/2014

Philosophy of law at King’s has achieved an excellent result in the 2014 Philosophical Gourmet Report, an influential ranking of graduate programmes in philosophy in the English speaking world. King’s was ranked among the very best graduate programmes in legal philosophy globally, and second only to Oxford in the United Kingdom.

The School of Law has long been highly regarded in the discipline of the philosophy of law. It has recently appointed new academic staff, including Professor John Tasioulas, who joined the School recently as inaugural Chair of Politics, Philosophy & Law, and will further strengthen its research and teaching in the area through the Yeoh Tiong Lay (YTL) Centre for Politics, Philosophy & Law to be forged under Professor Tasioulas’ leadership. 

Professor Tasioulas commented: “It is very gratifying to receive international recognition of King’s excellence in legal philosophy. Thanks to the YTL Centre, including the new appointments we aim to make this year, I expect that we will soon be able to improve our standing even further”.

The ranking for philosophy of law drew on an expert panel of 16 evaluators, none of whom were permitted to award a score to their current institution or that from which they received their PhD. 

See the rankings on the Leiter Report blog.
