Topic areas


Oxford Seminars in Jurisprudence, in association with Legal Theory, invites submissions of draft papers in any area within the philosophy of law, broadly defined, for presentation at an in-person conference on the 4th and 5th July 2022, to be held at Brasenose College, Oxford.

Papers selected for presentation at the conference will be given serious consideration for inclusion in a special issue of Legal Theory, after post-conference revisions. Please note that acceptance into the conference is not an assurance of ultimate publication. But review will be expedited with a view to inclusion in the special issue.

By submitting a paper to the conference, you agree that, if the paper is accepted for the conference, you will present the paper at the conference, submit the paper for the special issue of Legal Theory, and not submit the paper elsewhere until an editorial decision has been made. You also agree to publish the paper in Legal Theory, if the paper is accepted for the special issue.

Limited financial support for travel and accommodation may be available for those who do not have another source of funding.  

Submission Details

Please email submissions, by the closing date, to [email protected]

Papers and abstracts should be fully anonymized to allow for blind review. Only one submission per author will be considered. An abstract of up to 400 words should be included.

Submissions must be full papers of up to 15,000 words, including footnotes, and must be unpublished work.

Closing Date for Submissions: Tuesday 15 March 2022.

We aim to notify all authors of the decisions by 1 April 2022.
