Centre for Legal Theory

The Singapore Symposium in Legal Theory 2014
(funded by Singapore Ministry of Education Academic Research Fund Tier1)

The Singapore Symposium in Legal Theory is an initiative supported by the Faculty of Law to promote discussion of current research in the field of legal theory, broadly conceived. It consists of occasional seminars and a formal programme of papers held in Semester 2 each year, in which those working in legal theory from around the world join with colleagues at NUS to present work in progress and explore contemporary debates.

We welcomed Joseph Raz to inaugurate the formal programme in January 2014.
