Details

The Yale Journal of Law & the Humanities at Yale Law School invites proposals for a special symposium, “Philosophy’s Practical Turn.” Papers should be submitted by December 31, 2016.

The Yale Journal of Law & the Humanities (YJLH) is seeking full submissions for a symposium section of the Spring 2017 issue. The journal seeks submissions that employ methods of philosophy (broadly construed) to investigate practical legal issues. We hope to publish articles representative of an array of philosophical traditions and contemporary issues. The special section aims to exemplify how philosophical approaches and insights provide distinctive and significant contributions to practical legal debates. Example topics include:

Bioethics, biolaw, and technology

Feminist philosophy of law

Law and philosophy of race, gender, sexuality

Mass incarceration and prisons

Neuroscience, law, and philosophy

Philosophical analyses of legal evidence or standards of proof

Philosophy of disability and the law

Practical just war theory and philosophy of war

Topics in practical ethics (e.g. abortion, capital punishment) with a legal-philosophical angle

Please submit papers prepared for anonymous review to by December 31, 2016. Feel free to contact us in advance if it would be useful to receive informal feedback on the appropriateness of a proposed topic. We also aim to accept and publish standard submissions for Volume 29(2) (in addition to articles chosen for the special section of the issue).
