Lisbon Conference on Law and Ethics
The Bridge Between Metaethics and Jurisprudence

3 – 4 March 2022
NOVA School of Social Sciences and Humanities / University of Lisbon – School of Law & Online

IFILNOVA and Lisbon LxLTG – Legal Theory Group are organizing a joint conference on the relationship between metaethics and jurisprudence – both essential for the comprehension of ethics and law –, aiming to bring together philosophers and legal scholars discussing the possible interactions between both disciplines, and questions lying at their intersection.

The conference will have an online day with several presentations following a call for papers (3 March) and an in-person day with, among others, keynote talks by Connie Rosati, Maria Alvarez, Scott Shapiro and Luís Duarte d’Almeida (4 March).

To join the online sessions, please send an e-mail to one of the convenors, Susana Cadilha [susanacadilha@fcsh.unl.pt] or Jorge Silva Sampaio [jorgesilvasampaio@fd.ulisboa.pt], asking for access data. If you wish to participate in-person, please also send an e-mail expressing your interest.
