The Programme for the Foundations of Law and Constitutional Government supports leading scholarly work on the nature of law and its social, political and moral foundations, the shape of sound constitutional order and constitutional principle, and the challenges to realising the rule of law and constitutional government. Based in the Faculty of Law, the Programme convenes seminars, workshops and conferences examining foundational questions in constitutional law and theory, and in legal and political thought more broadly. The Programme also hosts outstanding doctoral students and visiting scholars, aiming to contribute to our understanding of the nature and value of human flourishing and the rule of law.
