Senior Lecturer in Law Dr Luca Siliquini-Cinelli presented the Uppsala Forum on Democracy, Peace and Justice guest lecture at the Uppsala University Faculty of Law, Sweden.
Speaking on Juristic Practice as an Act of Experience, Dr Siliquini-Cinelli explored the academic debate on the crisis faced by law schools and the legal profession, and how juristic practice is a matter of experience rather than knowledge.
In an extract from the lecture, Dr Siliquini-Cinelli said: “Our existence is highly legalised, and law is being pervasively practised. The proliferation of transnational judicial networks and forms of cooperation, as well as the emergence of multiple methods of legalisation on the post-national scale and evolving interest in (transnational) comparative legal analysis, are just some of the many examples one might give in this regard. Yet over the past decade, a great deal of scholarship has claimed that law schools and the legal professions are witnessing a profound, existential crisis for a variety of reasons.”
Elsewhere, Dr Siliquini-Cinelli presented a paper on Global Constitutionalism's Philosophical and Biopolitical Significance at the Faculty of Law, Lund University. He also had a co-edited piece of work; The Constitutional Dimension of Contract Law. A Comparative Perspective, published by Springer.
In September, Dr Siliquini-Cinelli will attend the Annual Conference of the Society of Legal Scholars, presenting a paper in the Jurisprudence panel at the event in Dublin.
