Andrew Chadwick, Dean of the Law School, BPP University delivered the talked to the students.

It started with introduction about BPP University and law programme by Andrew Chadwick. Later he focused by the topic of having discussion with the students. The Dean exposured the students on Dworkin’s theory where is “interpretive’, the law is whatever follows from constructive interpretation of the institutional history of legal system. Students been brief on moral principles that people hold dear are often wrong, even to the extend that certain crimes are acceptable if one’s principles are skewed enough.  To discover and apply these principles, courts interpret the legal data (legislation, cases etc.) with a view to articulating an interpretation that best explains and justifies past legal practice. All interpretation must follow, Dworkin argues, from the notion of "law as integrity" .  At the end of the programme,  the students  asked certain questions to clafiry their doubt and get more information about the topic they learned.It was a fruitful and informative session for the students.
