CELPA Seminar

The CELPA seminar is open to academic staff, PhD students interested in normative matters, and students on the MA in Political and Legal Theory. There are no presentations in the CELPA seminars. A paper is pre-circulated a few days in advance and the seminar involves a discussion with the author. We meet on Tuesdays at 2-3.30pm, normally in S1.50.

If you would like to come to these seminars please contact Adam Slavny (a dot slavny at warwick dot ac dot uk), who will add your name to the distribution list.
