Call for Presenters for Semester One 2015-16 [October and November]
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. We can be flexible about the particular days that we meet. If you are interested, please contact Dr Jorge Emilio Nunez j.nunez@mmu.ac.uk.
