The Ontario Legal Philosophy Partnership is an institutional arrangement between Osgoode Hall Law School and the departments of philosophy of McMaster University and York University whose primary aim is to facilitate academic collaborations between the three partners in the field of legal philosophy.
In particular, OLPP seeks to:
- Create a favorable environment for the development of joint research projects and grant applications;
- Facilitate and encourage the organization of joint international conferences and workshops;
- Promote greater interactions and synergies between legal philosophers based in the three institutions by supporting the joint development and teaching of courses, as well as co-supervision of graduate students;
- Enhance the student experience of JD and McMaster/York graduate students in law and philosophy who are interested in legal philosophy by facilitating enrollment in relevant courses offered by each partner institution.
- Increase the visibility of the legal philosophy activities at York and McMaster.
The partnership builds on a long history of collaboration between the three partners, and seeks to formalize existing links that have become increasingly solid and fruitful since the beginning of the millenium. It acknowledges that each of the partners already has a vibrant legal philosophy culture, and does not seek to supersede or take its place in anyway. Its aim is rather to create even further opportunities for each institution and their students.
