The annual conference of the Australasian Society of Legal Philosophy will be hosted by the NZ Centre for Legal and Political Theory and Auckland Law School at the University of Auckland from 6-7 July 2023. Keynote lectures will be delivered by Professor Ruth Chang (Oxford) and Professor Martin Krygier (UNSW). The subject of this year’s book symposium will be Responsive Judicial Review: Democracy and Dysfunction in the Modern Age by Rosalind Dixon (UNSW).
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 emailed to Arie Rosen by Friday, March 31 2023.
