Recent News

The schedule for the 2011-2012 edition of Osgoode Hall’s Nathanson Centre seminar series on Legal Philosophy between State and Transnationalism is now advertized online.

Guest speakers for this year include David Luban (Georgetown), Colleen Murphy (Texas A&M), Neil Walker (Edinburgh), Adil Haque (Rutgers-Newark), Christopher Kutz (Berkeley), and Michael Blake (Washington). A description of the series is available on the Nathanson Centre’s website.

Dan Priel (Osgoode) recently launched Juristhought, his new thought-provoking blog on legal theory. Check it out!

Riding on the wave of enthusiasm surrounding OLPP’s launch, York University and McMaster University recently published stories about the partnership in YFile (York’s daily online bulletin) and the McMaster Daily News.

The Department of Philosophy of McMaster University, under the leadership of OLPP members Wil Waluchow and Stefan Sciaraffa, will be hosting an international conference on “The Nature of Law: Contemporary Perspectives” from 11 to 15 May, 2011. With many of the biggest names in general analytical jurisprudence present, it has already been described as quite possibly “the largest philosophy of law conference ever to be hosted by a single institution”.

OLPP will also be strongly represented in the conference program with Professor Michael Giudice (York Philosophy) delivering one of the keynote addresses, and Professors Dan Priel (Osgoode) and Allan Hutchinson (Osgoode) also presenting papers.

NB: OLPP will be hosting and sponsoring a launch reception, to be held on Friday, 13 May at 6pm, in the Great Hall of McMaster’s University Club.

Osgoode Hall’s Dean Lorne Sossin announced on 4 April, 2011 that the law school had hired two new young leading legal theorists to supplement its already strong team of legal philosophers.

OLPP is very happy to welcome Dan Priel (from the University of Warwick – general jurisprudence, tort theory) and Benjamin Berger (from the University of Victoria – law, liberalism, and religion, constitutional and criminal law theory) in its ranks.
