This is a call for abstracts for the 2014 McMaster Legal Philosophy Conference. The conference theme is the Legacy of Ronald Dworkin. We invite abstracts for papers that address any aspect of Dworkin’s work, including but not limited to his work in constitutional jurisprudence, political philosophy, general jurisprudence, and metaethics. To receive full consideration for inclusion, abstracts must be received by October 31, 2013 and should be between 800 and 1000 words.
