The CEL combines high octane academic thinking with the realities of the
world. To my mind, this makes its value and output unusual, and

The Centre shines a light on cutting edge ethical problems that confront
the professions and industry, and offers a unique platform for
academics and industry leaders to engage constructively with one another
and unpack the issues at stake.
Dr Prince Saprai, Lecturer in Laws, UCL
Engineering is a discipline concerned, ultimately, with changing the
world. Those changes have ethical and legal implications that engineers
must understand and navigate. The Centre for Ethics and Law provides a
trans-disciplinary framework for exploring issues and fostering debate
on important challenges. The Centre also reaches outwards to companies
and other organisations who can contribute to our understanding. It is
an example of the sort of initiative that UCL does best.
Professor Anthony Finkelstein, Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, UCL
I am proud to be a graduate of UCL's law faculty and honoured to be a member of CEL's advisory committee. Today's world of financial uncertainty and growing public demand for transparency and accountability in all aspects of public and business life, cries out for a centre like CEL. CEL is already tackling some of the key issues emerging from today's crises and this website will help to open the debate wider and generate better solutions.
Richard Alderman, former Director of the Serious Fraud Office
As a political philosopher it is rare to be able to discuss matters of
policy with leading figures in the commercial sector. The Centre for Law
and Ethics has provided this valuable opportunity.
