Victoria Colloquium: December 4th

Title: "Legal Officials at the Heart of Legal Theory: the Practice of Role-Morality"

Speaker: Dr. Nicole Roughan, Assistant Professor, Faculty of Law (National University of Singapore)

Friday, Dec 4th at 2:30 pm, Fraser Building (Law), Room 152


Professor Roughan is a New Zealand citizen and has previously held appointments as Temporary Lecturer in Jurisprudence at the University of Cambridge, Teaching Officer at Trinity College Cambridge, Adjunct Lecturer at the University of Kent at Brussels, and Lecturer at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand.
Nicole’s book, Authorities: Conflicts, Cooperation, and Transnational Legal Theory was published by OUP in 2013. It presents a new, pluralist theory of authority, in which relationships between authorities are conditions of those authorities’ legitimacy. Nicole’s current research agenda pursues ‘pluralist jurisprudence,’ focusing on projects in general jurisprudence beyond the State, the philosophy of both international law and indigenous law, and the idea of the legal official in both State and non-State legal orders.
