The End(s) of the Legal Academy (Law on Trial 2015)

Birkbeck, Friday 19 June, 1.30pm

The obituaries of academic freedom, the humanities, and indeed the university itself are coming to focus not just on the end of an erstwhile academy but also on what the ends, the purport, of the academy should and could now be. This workshop brings this concern to bear on the role of the legal academy, a role that is distinctive yet shared with other faculties in the university. It explores what that role imports for the character of being-together within the legal academy.
