The UCD Centre for Ethics in Public Life (CEPL) in association with the UCD College of Social Sciences and Law presents a weekly series of lunchtime seminars on various aspects of ethics that will run through the academic year.  The seminars aim to address ethical issues as issues of intellectual interest that cross disciplinary borders.  All interested members of academic staff in UCD as well as PhD students are welcome to attend.

The seminars take place in Newman Building D101 on Thursdays from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
