Research theme

Legal philosophy

My interests in the philosophy of law lie in general jurisprudence (foundations of legal systems) and in constitutional theory (constitutional change and constitutional interpretation). In my doctoral thesis, I developed an account of legal change going to the foundations of legal systems (HLA Hart’s rules of recognition). I have also written on constitutional interpretation in the United States (originalism) and in Poland.

Much of the work I present under the public law theme has strong theoretical elements.

My current teaching that involves philosophical issues:

  • Ethics and Regulation of Artificial Intelligence — a compulsory module on the MSc in AI course offered by the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Surrey.
  • Privacy and Data Governance — an optional module for final-year law students at the University of Surrey School of Law.
