The 7th Legal Philosophy Workshop (LPW) will be held at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles on June 25-26, 2020.

LPW is an annual workshop 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. All sessions are plenary. You can find more information about LPW for this year and years past on our website:

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract and/or volunteer to comment. If you are interested in submitting an abstract or commenting on a paper, please do so by January 6, 2020. Please ensure that the abstract is anonymized and that it does not exceed 1,000 words. You can sign up for the mailing list, volunteer to comment, and submit an abstract on this form: We hope to make our decision about the abstracts by the end of January.

Once we have received abstracts, we aim to put together a diverse program that we hope will be of interest to a wide range of people in legal philosophy. Please note that this is an open call for abstracts, so please feel free to forward this information to anyone who you think might be interested in presenting a paper, commenting on a paper, or attending the workshop.

We look forward to hearing from you.
