The LPW is an annual conference designed to foster reflection on the nature of law and the philosophical issues underlying its different areas. Our aim is to promote work that connects legal philosophy with other branches of philosophy (e.g. moral and political philosophy, metaphysics, philosophy of language, epistemology, or philosophy of action) and to create a venue for the critical examination of different viewpoints about law.

The LPW is an annual event, hosted in venues alternating between North America and the United Kingdom.  The 2018 LPW will be hosted by Rutgers University - New Brunswick on May 31-June 1.  Previous workshops have been hosted by the University of Pennsylvania, University of Edinburgh, Queens University and University College London.
