The Law of Law

I am Dr Pravin Jeyaraj. In April 2011, as a PhD student, I organised a one-day methodology workshop on the dialectic method, The Law of Law: Dialectics in Critical and Socio-legal Research. My interest in dialectics started when I began reading Hegel as part of the research for my PhD in Law at University of Westminster’s Law and Theory Lab. The idea behind the workshop was to present a range of legal researchers covering the different readings of the dialectic method, not necessarily Hegel’s dialectic. Here was the result (well, sort of, there had to be some juggling on the day, due to speaker’s own schedules – this was my intended result).
