collaboration with the Universities of Birmingham, Durham, Hull,
Liverpool, Manchester, and Manchester Metropolitan.

Call for Presenters 2015-16

If your current research is on a topic that can be broadly
characterised as jurisprudence—i.e. legal and political philosophy,
and you would be interested in presenting it to a friendly group,
which includes academics as well as lawyers, you are welcome to be
a presenter at the Juris North Discussion Group.
The discussions are normally held on Wednesday afternoons. But we
can be flexible about the particular days that we meet. Discussions
are always informal and very lively since we follow a Rawlsian
approach. That means we do not have “Professors” and “Students”
but people interested in discussing issues related to legal and political
philosophy. So any question is an important question for debate.
If you would like to give a paper as part of our 2015-16 Working Paper
Series then please send an abstract, no more than 500 words long
and written in English.

If you are interested, please contact Dr Jorge
Emilio Nunez j.nunez@mmu.ac.uk.

The seminars will have a ‘pre-read’ format: successful applicants will
be asked to send a draft paper two weeks in advance of the seminar
so that it can be circulated amongst members of the group.

Accommodation and expenses: we will not be able to make any
contribution towards accommodation and travel expenses.

Enquiries please contact Dr Jorge Núñez: j.nunez@mmu.ac.uk
