Leslie Green Accepts New Jurisprudence Chair at Oxford

My part-time colleague Leslie Green, who has made major contributions to legal and political philosophy, has accepted the new Professorship of Philosophy of Law at Oxford University, which also includes a Fellowship at Balliol College.  The Professorship, a new statutory chair, was created upon the retirement of Joseph Raz from his personal Chair, also at Balliol.  It is one of just two statutory professorships in jurisprudence at Oxford, the other being held by John Gardner.

Green is currently Professor of Law and Philosophy at Osgoode Hall School of Law and in the Department of Philosophy at York University, Toronto, as well as a regular Visiting Professor at the University of Texas at Austin.  Green will continue to teach on a regular part-time basis at Texas even after assuming the Oxford Chair next fall.
