The Ontario Legal Philosophy Partnership (OLPP) Annual Graduate Student Conference is a free academic event at which we showcase recent work in legal theory and the philosophy of law. The presented papers range in topics from feminist legal theory, philosophy of criminal law, international law, constitutionalism, and many more. While acceptance is given only to graduate and law students, all are welcome to attend (including students, faculty, or any persons with a general interest in legal theory).

We issue our Call for Papers to Philosophy departments and Law Schools within Canada, and internationally (particularly to the U.S. and Europe). Along with the criteria of interest, clarity, sophistication, and general thematic overlap, the selection of successful applicants involves attention to ensuring gender and ethnic diversity.

Since 2009, we have been fortunate to have attracted many well-known legal scholars, especially as keynotes speakers. Our keynote speakers provide feedback to the presenters and interact with the academics and students who attend. This year our keynote speakers are Dr. Natalie Stoljar from McGill University and Dr. Douglas Husak from Rutger's University.

This conference would not be possible without the continued support and sponsorship of Dr. Wil Waluchow, who holds the Senator William McMaster Chair in Constitutional Studies.
