The annual conference of the Australasian Society of Legal Philosophy will be hosted by the Julius Stone Institute of Jurisprudence at the University of Sydney on 14-15 July 2022.

Keynote lectures will be delivered by Professor Kirsty Gover (University of Melbourne) and Professor Claudio Michelon (University of Edinburgh). The subject of the annual book symposium will be Constituent Power and the Law by Professor Joel Colón-Ríos (Victoria University of Wellington). Commentaries will be provided by Professor Rosalind Dixon and Ayesha Wijayalath (University of New South Wales), Dr Yarran Hominh (Dartmouth College), and Associate Professor Ron Levy (Australian National University).

The aim of the ASLP Conference is to provide a forum for the discussion and debate of a range of issues in legal theory, broadly defined. It is by no means restricted to analytic legal philosophy, and the involvement of participants from other disciplines is strongly encouraged. Philosophical or theoretically oriented papers from any field of legal inquiry are welcomed.

A small workshop for PhD candidates will be held before the conference. The workshop provides PhD candidates with the opportunity to receive feedback on work in progress on any topic in legal theory in a supportive and collaborative environment.

Abstracts (of no more than 250 words) for both the ASLP Conference and the PhD workshop should be submitted by 29 April 2022 at

Please contact Dr Kevin Walton ([email protected]) with any enquiries about the conference.
