WS – Anthony Duff’s Book, _The Realm of Criminal Law_
30 January 2020, 11:00 AM–6:00 PM GMT
The YTL Centre in Politics, Philosophy, and Law at KCL is organising a workshop Anthony Duff’s new book, ‘The Realm of Criminal Law,’ on Thursday 30 January 2020, at Somerset House East Wing, King’s College London (Strand Campus).
Professor Duff is one of the leading philosophers of the criminal law of our time. “The Realm of the Criminal Law, proposes a normative theory of criminal law, and of criminalization, that shows how criminal law could be ordered, principled, and restrained. The theory is based on an account of criminal law as a distinctive legal practice that functions to declare and define a set of public wrongs, and to call to formal public account those who commit such wrongs; an account of the role that such practice can play in a democratic republic of free and equal citizens; and an account of the central features of such a political community, and of the way in which it constitutes its public realm-its civil order.”
