The HLS Law & Philosophy Society is delighted to invite you to an in-person talk with Professor Lawrence Solum
on his new paper “Outcome Reasons and Process Reasons in Normative Constitutional Theory
.” The talk will take place on Thursday, February 23, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in WCC 3016.
Professor Solum is the William L. Matheson and Robert M. Morgenthau Distinguished Professor of Law and Douglas D. Drysdale Research Professor of Law at the University of Virginia School of Law. He was previously a faculty member at the Georgetown University Law Center. Professor Solum is a world-renowned legal theorist specializing in legal philosophy, civil procedure, and constitutional theory. He is a prolific writer who has shaped many aspects of the debate between originalism and constitutional theory. Professor Solum has also famously coined the term “Virtue Jurisprudence,” a highly original theory about the nature and purpose of law that has sparked great interest across Asia, Europe, and North America. A graduate of HLS and UCLA, Professor Solum served as an editor of the Harvard Law Review, worked for the law firm of Cravath, Swaine, and Moore in New York, and clerked for Judge William A. Norris of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Professor Solum is also the editor of the influential Legal Theory Blog
, an amazing and constantly updated resource for whoever is interested in normative legal theory. We are delighted to welcome him back to HLS for this fascinating event!
