The Yeoh Tiong Lay Centre for Politics, Philosophy and Law presents the Kcrim: Michaelmas Hearings with Professor Michelle Dempsey, University of Villanova. Professor Dempsey will be discussing, 'Consent in Moral, Political, and Legal Perspectives: Some Implications for Sexual Offenses'.

Rather than a freestanding paper, Michelle has sent the first couple of chapters of the book she and Jonathan Herring are working on: Sex, Wrongdoing, and Criminalization. She adds that, "if people read pp. 15-30 (‘Gaining Perspectives’) and pp. 41-44 (‘Overview of the Book’) that will give a sense of the project as a whole." Once you have registered to attend, you will receive a copy of the chapter.

Amongst its programme of activities, KCrim convenes the Michaelmas Hearings, which bring together some of today's leading criminal law thinkers to discuss current legal issues affecting the United Kingdom, Europe, and the rest of the world. Each year, our speakers are expected to offer up for discussion some real problems in the theory and application of the criminal law, broadly understood. In the coming term, we shall welcome speakers from the United States (Doug Husak), Scotland (Antony Duff) and England (Findlay Stark and Bob Sullivan).

Potential attendees of the Michaelmas Hearings should bear in mind that we shall generally commence substantive conversation as quickly as possible, without allowing much by way of presentation from the guest. Reading the paper in advance is, therefore, generally a prerequisite.
