Welcome to the Center for Law & Philosophy on the World Wide Web.

The Center's mission is to provide a basis for high-level scholarly cooperation, first among the extraordinary group of faculty at Columbia in the overlapping areas of moral philosophy, political theory, and jurisprudence, and secondly, to provide leadership in this area of overlap for scholars in the Greater New York area and indeed throughout the United States. Since 1997, the Center has organized and sponsored a variety of activities to bring together many of Columbia's impressive faculty resources in moral, political and legal philosophy, in public lectures, specialist workshops, regular colloquia, and academic conferences.
