CFP within The Australian Society of Legal Philosophy’s Annual Conference – Melbourne, Australia (Submissions DL: 29.04)

The Australian Society of Legal Philosophy’s Annual Conference will be held at Melbourne Law School, University of Melbourne from Friday 22 July to Sunday 24 July.

Keynote speakers on Friday and Saturday will include world-renowned legal theorists Robin West (Georgetown) and Frederick Schauer (Virginia).

The annual book symposium, held on Sunday morning, will be devoted to Matthew Harding’s Charity Law and the Liberal State (Cambridge, 2014).

Call for Papers

The ASLP welcomes philosophical and theoretically-oriented papers from any field of legal inquiry. The aim of the ASLP Annual 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 we strongly encourage the involvement of participants from other disciplines and the inclusion of topics from outside mainstream legal theory.

Pre-Conference Postgraduate Workshop

A Postgraduate Workshop for PhD students will be held on Friday immediately prior to the formal commencement of the conference. The ASLP Postgraduate Workshop provides PhD students with the opportunity to receive feedback on works-in-progress in a supportive and collaborative
environment. We welcome submissions on any topic in legal theory, broadly defined.

Abstract Submission

Abstracts for both the ASLP Conference and the Postgraduate Workshop should be submitted via email by Friday 29 April to: Dr Lael Weis, Melbourne Law School (

We thank Mikolaj Barczentewicz, James Manwaring and Leah Trueblood (the Jurisprudence Discussion Group Convenors) for the pointer.
