Legal Philosophy Workshop is an annual conference designed to foster reflection on the nature of law and the philosophical issues underlying its different areas. Our aim is to promote work that connects legal philosophy with other branches of philosophy (e.g., moral and political philosophy, metaphysics, philosophy of language, epistemology, or philosophy of action) and to create a venue for the critical examination of different viewpoints about law. 

This is our 6th LPW and the format of the workshop is pre-read. We will be discussing 6 papers, circulated about in advance. Each session will start with a very short presentation by the author (5 minutes). A commentator will then kick off the discussion; the author will respond to the comments, and then the remainder of the session will be dedicated to Q&A.

Here are the presenters and the titles of their papers that we will be discussion (with names of the commenters):

  • Lilith Newton (Edinburgh) "The Mental State of Permissible Conviction" with comments by Katherine Puddifoot (Durham)
  • Marcin Matczack (Warsaw) "Non-Lewisian Conventionalism and Law" with comments by Claudio Michelon (Edinburgh)
  • Erin Beeghly (Utah) "Stereotyping and Discrimination: Their Relationship and Why It Matters" with comments by Heather Whitney (NYU)
  • Adam Perry (Oxford) "Adopted Norms" with comments by Leah Trueblood (Oxford)
  • Giada Frantantonio (Helsinki) "Testimonial Evidence and Proof Paradoxes" with comments by Aness Webster (Nottingham)
  • Massimo Renzo (KCL) "Two Kinds of Consent" with comments by Sabine Tsuruda (Queens)
