Event description
ANU College of Law is proud to host a virtual seminar presented by Professor Trevor Allan LLD, FBA, of the University of Cambridge.

About this event

In this seminar, Professor Allan will present his thesis that the law is constituted by the requirements of justice for the political community in which it operates, so that a public conception of justice is substituted for conflicting private ones. He will argue that our legal obligations are precisely the moral obligations we owe as citizens, faithful to that community, and that we honour the demands of justice by our obedience to law – the law that obtains in virtue of adherence to the ideal of the rule of law.

His associated paper on this theme was recently published in Jurisprudence, and is currently available online here: https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/20403313.2020.1782596.

Trevor Allan is Professor of Jurisprudence and Public Law at the University of Cambridge, and is a Fellow of Pembroke College. He is a leading figure in constitutional law, and has written widely on legality, legitimacy and sovereignty in the common law constitution.
