About me

Mikołaj BarczentewiczI am a Lecturer in Law in Jesus College, University of Oxford. I am also a tutor in law at University College and at New College. I teach the core courses in Jurisprudence (philosophy of law), European Union Law, Constitutional Law and Roman Law for Oxford law students. In the spring of 2016, I was a Visiting Scholar at the University of Melbourne.

I have published in the Law Quarterly Review and in several edited collections (some of my papers are available on my Publications page).

I am pursuing a doctorate in law in the Faculty of Law at the University of Oxford. I specialise in jurisprudence and constitutional theory. My doctoral research focuses on unlawful (or unconstitutional) ways of changing constitutions. I am interested in developing HLA Hart’s account of secondary rules – and especially – of the rule of recognition. Currently, I am working on how rules of recognition change and how can we get reliable knowledge of the content of a particular rule of recognition.
