This website gives information on Jeremy Bentham and about
the work of the Bentham Project. We are the world centre for
Bentham Studies and our main activity is the production of the
new edition of Bentham's Collected Works. We are part of UCL's Faculty of Laws.
The Bentham Project has recently begun an initiative to transcribe the manuscripts of Jeremy Bentham. Transcribe Bentham was formally launched in September 2010.
