Dr Findlay Stark
My main academic interest is legal, moral, and political philosophy, particularly (though not exclusively) as applied to the criminal law and the criminal process more generally. I am also interested in doctrinal issues concerning the criminal law and its attendant rules of procedure, evidence and sentencing. Outside of criminal justice, I have an interest in legal theory/jurisprudence more generally.

I read (Scots) law at the Universities of Aberdeen and Edinburgh, before moving to Cambridge in 2011. I have taught at the University of Cambridge since January 2012, and have been a Fellow of Jesus College since October 2012.
