Crime, Punishment and Responsibility: the Legal Philosophy of Antony Duff

A one-day conference celebrating the work of Prof. Antony Duff
This one-day conference will celebrate the work of Prof. Antony Duff, who for many years has been one of the world’s foremost philosophers of criminal law. In numerous books and scholarly articles, Duff has developed a persuasive liberal-communitarian theory of law and its institutions.  His communicative theory of punishment has been central to the recent renaissance of retributivism in the philosophy of criminal law. That theory – along with his classic works on criminal attempts, on responsibility, and on the criminal trial – has shaped the discipline.
