LPW is an annual pre-read 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 and you can find more Information about LPW for this year and years past on our website.

LPW 2021 will be held online over three weeks in June and July 2021.  All sessions begin at 12pm Eastern Standard Time.  We have a fabulous lineup of speakers and commentators:

  • Tuesday, June 22Candice Delmas (Northeastern) on "The Right to Hunger Strike", with comments by Kara Woodbury-Smith (Durham)
