By Dr. Matthew Wilkinson

Thursday, 6 November 2014. We are delighted and honoured to announce that Professor Alan Norrie, Head of the School of Law, University of Warwick, has accepted our invitation to join the Academic Advisory Team of Curriculum for Cohesion.

Alan is a pioneering thinker in the fields of criminal law and legal theory. Underpinning this work is his development of critical realist theory to examine the ethical grounds of justice. Alan was Edmund-Davies Professor of Criminal Law & Criminal Justice at King’s College London (1997-2009) and he also held the Drapers’ Chair in Law at Queen Mary & Westfield College (1994-7). He is President of the International Association for Critical Realism. He is the author of a number of acclaimed books including Law, Ideology & Punishment (Kluwer, 1991), Punishment, Responsibility & Justice (OUP, 2000), Crime, Reason & History (CUP, 2014, 3rd ed), Law & the Beautiful Soul (Routledge, 2005), and Dialectic & Difference (Routledge, 2010).

Alan will strengthen and enrich our work with legal theory at the intersection of British state law with Islamic religious law and add intellectual rigour to our contribution to training for the judiciary.
