My Teaching at Chicago Next Year

A couple of folks have asked about my law & philosophy offerings, so here's what's on the agenda at this point:

I'll be doing the "Law and Philosophy Workshop" all year on the topic "Toleration and Religious Liberty."  This is cross-listed between the Law School and Philosophy Department, and is open to students in either unit, as well as others at the university; all students will need to submit a statement of interest and other information to be considered for admission (there are details at the link, above).  Speakers at the workshop will include Joseph Raz, Simon Blackburn, Susan Mendus, Leslie Green, and Martha Nussbaum, as well as various legal scholars and legal theorists.

In the fall quarter, I'll be offering in the Law School the basic Jurisprudence I course (scroll down) covering the nature of law and the theory of adjudication.  In the Spring quarter, I'll offer Jurisprudence II (again, scroll down), which will cover "topics in moral, political, and legal theory."  I haven't fixed the precise topics yet, but Juris I won't be a prerequisite.  JD students get priority for these, though MA and PhD students from other units can take them as cognates.

Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions.
