Institute for Law and Philosophy

Penn Law

The Institute for Law and Philosophy brings together a number of scholars in law, philosophy, and other disciplines for the purpose of discussing the application of legal theory to contemporary legal, moral and political issues.

Topics are debated and discussed at the Institute’s regularly scheduled faculty workshops, featuring guest speakers who present papers on their current research interests. The Institute also hosts special conferences on specific topics in legal philosophy. Its mission is to provide a forum in which scholars working on theoretical topics in the law and related fields can exchange ideas on topics of mutual interest.
