“Jurisprudence in the Pub”

The UCL Jurisprudence Review is happy to invite you to its first “Jurisprudence in the Pub” event of the year.

The event will take place on Tuesday the 21st of February 2012 at 19:30, at the “Friend at Hand” pub in Bloomsbury (a separate area has been booked); the address of the pub is 4 Herbrand Street, Bloomsbury, London, WC1N 1HX (Russel Square Tube station) (http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&q=friend+at+hand+pub&gs_sm=e&gs_upl=1128l3747l0l3881l18l9l0l6l6l0l212l1119l4.4.1l14l0&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&biw=1366&bih=566&wrapid=tlif132727663872110&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wl)

Our aim is for the event to have both a social and a jurisprudential dimension. In respect to the latter, two of the Review’s Associate Editors will deliver five-minute presentations regarding:

‘The problem of authority: why should I do what you tell me to do just because you said so?’
by Miguel-Jose Lopez-Lorenzo

– ‘Jurisprudence as fiction-based science’
by Sebastian Schmid

Each presentation will be followed by a discussion/open floor debate on the matter presented. We would like to stress that the debates will be informal, as the event is targeted at bringing jurisprudence to the forefront in a casual and relaxed manner. Consequently, we would encourage everyone interested in jurisprudence and legal theory to come along and contribute to the debate.

The presentations and discussions will take up an estimated hour of the entire evening, and upon their end we will have the chance to meet and have a drink with the UCLJR Team.

Considering the limited number of places available we invite you to register to the event’s eventbrite page and indicate your intention to attend: http://jurisinthepub.eventbrite.co.uk/

In case you need any further information please do not hesitate to contact Napoleon Xanthoulis (Volume Editor) at: juris.review@ucl.ac.uk

We look forward to seeing you at the event!

Best Regards,

The UCL Jurisprudence Review
