In this inaugural lecture, Professor Descheemaeker will reflect on his experience of coming to the common law – and then spending almost two decades journeying through it – as someone whose formative years, including civilian legal education, reflected a profoundly different worldview and set of epistemological commitments. This unusual perspective has provided a perhaps distinctive take on what constitute some of the admirable, and also less admirable, features of the common law as an intellectual tradition.
