Event details

Presented by Professor Alan Norrie (Warwick Law School)

Alan Norrie is interested in the critical and historical analysis of criminal law and in its ethical and doctrinal problems, and in ideas of guilt, forgiveness and justice.

His background is in socio-legal theory and in critical realist and dialectical philosophy. He published a third edition of 'Crime, Reason and History' in 2014, which contains new chapters on self-defence and loss of control.

A collection of his recent essays on criminal law and justice, 'Justice and the Slaughter Bench: Essays on Law's Broken Dialectic', was published in 2016. From 2015-18, he held a Leverhulme Major Research Fellowship. In connection with that, he is currently completing a book on the moral psychology of guilt and forgiveness and their connection to law provisionally entitled 'Moral Psychology and Criminal Justice'.

This event is open to all interested colleagues.

Lunch and refreshments provided.
