Twin Conferences in Tribute to The Philosophy of Joseph Raz

Professor Joseph Raz, to many of us a lifelong mentor, colleague and dear friend, passed away on May 2nd, 2022. In recognition of Raz’s enormous influence in philosophy and legal theory, organizers of the twin conferences in tribute to his work invite you to attend one or both conferences and to participate in the discussions. The papers will be made available for download in advance of each conference, and participants will be assumed to have read the papers in advance. The sessions will be devoted to open discussion. This event is open to all.

Please fill out this short registration form to confirm your attendance.

Advanced registration is not required and can be completed on the day of attendance.

The conference is co-sponsored by the Program on Ethics & Public Life, Cornell University.
