Professor Joseph Raz will be discussing his paper 'The Democratic Deficit' at this KJuris Workshop.
The King's Legal Philosophy Workshop, directed by Professor Lorenzo Zucca and Dr Ori Herstein is a forum devoted to discussing works in progress by today's leading legal philosophers and theorists as well as by promising younger talents from around the world. While our focus is philosophical and jurisprudential, we construe these terms broadly and welcome all rigorous methodological approaches to legal theory.
Anyone with a keen interest in Legal Philosophy is welcome, yet potential attendees should bear in mind that we prefer to commence substantive conversation as quickly as possible and do not allow for much by way of presentation from the guest. Taking a look at the paper in advance is, therefore, advisable.
Please find the paper here.
