Time: 1:00 - 5:30pm
Venue: Room 313, Law Building, Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Road, London E1 4NS
This workshop is hosted by the Centre for Law and Society in a Global Context (CLSGC).
The workshop aims to examine moral, conceptual, and empirical questions about legal normativity, and in particular recent sceptical challenges against the supposed normativity of law. Can legal rules generate reasons to act as they require or only point to, or ‘trigger’, pre-existing reasons? Is it empirically correct that people obey the law, as opposed to merely conforming to it for reasons independent of the law? Does law have any distinct normative significance worthy of academic focus?
The workshop will provide a platform for a discussion of these and other related questions from different disciplinary angles, including legal, political, and moral philosophy as well as areas of social science such as social psychology.
