Legal Theory Reading Group, November 29, 7:00 PM, Pound 207

November 17th, 2010 · No Comments


The last Legal Theory Forum meeting of the semester will be Monday, Nov. 29, Pound 207. Food will be provided.

For the last session we’ll be reading two shorter pieces by Posner, representing his shift towards pragmatism. The first reading is the Pragmatist Manifesto (from Problems of Jurisprudence), which provides a brief theoretical overview of pragmatist jurisprudence. The second reading, a chapter on Pragmatism (from The Problematics of Moral and Legal Theory), gives some concrete examples of pragmatic adjudication. If you’re pressed for time, feel free to focus on the first, although the second provides helpful illustrations.

The readings are available here.

Looking forward to seeing you.

Anthony & Gustavo
