Biography

Dr Luca Siliquini-Cinelli joined the School of Law in November 2018. Previously he was a Senior Lecturer at Liverpool Hope University (2017-2018) and at Deakin University (2014-2017).

Luca obtained his LLB (magna cum laude) and PhD (awarded without corrections) from the University of Turin, Italy. More recently, he was awarded the Graduate Certificate of Higher Education Learning and Teaching from Deakin University. He was also admitted to the Bar in 2013 and practised law in Turin. He is the recipient of the 2013 Avv. Paolo Catalano Award and the 2013 Dott. Gian Luca Innocenti Award for being the top candidate overall at the Bar exam (Court of Appeal of Turin).

Luca is a member of the Society of Legal Scholars (SLS), the Australian Network for Japanese Law (ANJeL), and the Italian Association of Comparative Law (IACL).

Research interests

Luca is a legal comparatist and philosopher specialising in comparative contract law, comparative legal traditions, continental philosophy and political theory (particularly the thought of Ernst Cassirer, Martin Heidegger, Hannah Arendt, and Giorgio Agamben), and Japanese socio-legal theory.

Luca welcomes proposals for PhD supervision in the above fields.

Giappichelli Editore, 2013). He is currently working on a new monograph which offers a philosophical contextualisation of the origins and development of legal education and practice in the West for Edinburgh University Press (Encounters in Law & Philosophy, 2023). He has been acting as a reviewer for Cambridge University Press and Oxford University Press since 2015.
