Annual Seminar Series and Public Lectures

Legal Philosophy between State and Transnationalism: An international seminar series

This annual seminar series addresses emerging issues at the intersection of transnationalism, law, morality, and philosophy in a sustained and systematic manner. Featured speakers — eight per year, from all over the world — expose and explore ways in which our existing ideas about what law is, and about what law should be, may need modification, or possible rejection, as we reassess the place and role of legality and other kinds of normativity in today’s world.

The series is the result of collaboration between Osgoode Hall Law School and the Department of Philosophy of York University, and is hosted by Osgoode’s Nathanson Centre on Transnational Human Rights, Crime and Security. McMaster Faculty and graduate students regularly attend and act as respondents.

’Or ’Emet Annual Public Lecture

The ’Or ’Emet Lecture was established in 1976 at Osgoode Hall Law School to promote the study of law in the broadest sense. It seeks to promote public and professional appreciation of the significance of religion, ethics, culture and history in the development of the legal system. Recent ’Or ’Emet lecturers include John Tasioulas (UCL), Jeff McMahan (Rutgers), Frederick Schauer (Virginia), John Gardner (Oxford), and Brian Leiter (Chicago).

McMaster Visiting Speakers Series

The McMaster Philosophy department regularly welcomes leading legal philosophers who deliver lectures and seminars.
