Theorizing Criminal Law: An International Conference

December 3-4, 2023, Jerusalem

This criminal law theory conference aims to bring together, in an annual forum, researchers working on the theory of criminal law, criminal procedure, punishment, and the philosophical questions that underlie these areas of inquiry. The Conference seeks to advance research in the field and to foster interaction and collaboration between the growing number of researchers working on these and related questions.

The first Criminal Law Theory Conference was held online in a series of monthly sessions between December 2020 and May 2021. This conference continues that series with an in-person conference that will be held at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem over the course of two days on Dec. 3-4, 2023.

At each one-hour session, we will discuss a previously circulated short paper: each paper will be introduced by a commentator, and we will aim to allow as much time as is possible for discussion. We hope that these sessions will enable authors to get useful feedback on their papers, and all participants to enjoy the kinds of transnational and interdisciplinary conversation that we aim to foster.

Registration to attend the in-person (only) conference sessions is free and open, however advance registration for the conference is required. Further details about registration will be made available soon.
