All are warmly invited to attend the Bentham Project's Summer seminar series entitled 'Bentham and Colombia'.

The seminars will be given by Professor Gonzalo Ramírez from the Universidad Externado de Colombia, who has been awarded a bursary under UCL's International Teaching Excellence Bursary Scheme.

Professor Ramirez has been Professor of Legal Philosophy and Constitutional Law at the Universidad Externado de Colombia since February 2004. His research interests include globalization and law, constitutional reform in Colombia, Internet and rights (in particular legal blogs), Poverty and Social Rights, and the analysis of the influence of the thought of Jeremy Bentham in Colombia during the nineteenth century.

The seminars will take place at the premises of the UCL Bentham Project where more information can be obtained. The first seminar will be held on July 11 and the second on July 18.

Professor Ramírez will discuss the topic of Bentham and Colombia in two distinct ways. His first seminar will concentrate on Bentham's influence on Colombia during the 19th Century. In his second seminar he will explore how this influence can be taught through new approaches and methods, such as via the use of Internet resources.

Attendance is free of charge but registration is required.
