Below are details of talks hosted on campus by KLS, any of the KLS student law societies, the University’s central Careers & Employability Service and the wider university which may be of interest to you. Please note that the talks below are only a small proportion of the many talks that take place on campus every week. They are the ones that I believe are most relevant to law students but there will always be others that may be of interest to some of you so you should check out the university events calendar too.

Other events of interest

  • ‘Rhodes Must Fall: Obligations to Remove Cultural Artefacts’ Prof. Helen Frowe​​, Royal Institute of Philosophy Public Lecture March 27 (3-5pm), Cornwallis Central Lecture Room (CCLT1)    Abstract: This talk explores the circumstances in which a state authority ought to remove a statue of a historically significant figure from public display. I argue that states have duties to remove public statues of historical figures at least when that person engaged in serious rights violations, unless the statue is on display in a public museum or art gallery. This view is partly motivated by a conceptual claim about public statues of historical figures – namely, that such statues presumptively express positive evaluative attitudes towards that figure. As I will argue, it is because statues of historical figures typically express this positive evaluation of the subject that keeping the statue is incompatible with the duties to condemn and repudiate wrongdoing.
