University Professor of law and philosophy, David Dyzenhaus, has been named a Corresponding Fellow of the British Academy, the highest honour the Academy confers on non-UK residents in recognition of scholarly distinction in the humanities and social sciences.

Dyzenhaus’s research addresses the idea of legality in philosophy of law and political philosophy, constitutionalism, and the modern legal state.

The British Academy, founded in 1902, has a fellowship of over 1,400 leading minds. This year it elected 52 Fellows from UK universities and 29 Corresponding Fellows from universities around the world.

“It is an exceptional achievement to be recognized by the British Academy,” said Jutta Brunnée, Dean, University Professor and James Marshall Tory Dean’s Chair. “On behalf of the university, I congratulate David for his many contributions to legal thought and philosophy that have led to this significant honour.”
