Thomas Bullemore

DPhil Law


Thomas Bullemore is a DPhil candidate and Roche Scholar at New College. Having completed his LLB he took up a lectureship in legal philosophy at the Universidad de Chile and another one at the Universidad Diego Portales in Santiago. He also practiced and argued cases before Chilean courts and read for an MPhil in Law here in Oxford.

His doctoral research explores questions about what is constitutive of the legal domain, and how our epistemic access and our ways of representing it in thought and language are responsible to that constitution. He is currently supervised by David Enoch and previously worked with Timothy Endicott.

Thomas welcomes an exchange with anyone interested in social ontology, metaethical realism, and more specifically in the semantics, reason-giving, and knowledge of normative facts.
