The Public Law Discussion Group (@PLDG_Oxford) provides a forum for discussion of public law at the University of Oxford. 

If you would like to present a paper on public law at Oxford we would like to hear from you. We take a broad understanding of public law, including its comparative, historical and sociological dimensions. Recent presentations have ranged from the history of English administrative law to the constitutional protection of Other Dalits under the Indian Constitution.

We attract a range of distinguished speakers from all around the world – for more details, please see our Events page. Although we do not have the resources to accept every application, we are especially keen to hear from research students and early-career researchers who want to air their work. We try to match students and early-career presenters with an experienced commentator from our faculty who can provide detailed feedback.

If your institution cannot support your travel to Oxford, please contact us, and we will endeavour to find funding for you. If you have an idea you would like to bring to us, please contact one of our convenors or the Faculty Member. 

The Public Law Discussion Group is student run. We are grateful to Oxford’s Programme for the Foundations of Law and Constitutional Governance for their support.
