Legal philosophy conference comes to Murdoch May 5, 2014 Dr Augusto Zimmermann has organised the ASLP Conference Questions about the law and legal systems will be debated and discussed at the Australian Society of Legal Philosophy (ASLP) annual conference and book symposium at Murdoch University’s School of Law in June. The conference will be attended by leading professors in the field, as well as judges and legal practitioners from both Australia and overseas, with speakers presenting on a variety of topics. Conference organiser Dr Augusto Zimmermann, from Murdoch’s School of Law, said the conference was the main occasion for members of the ASLP to get together and to read papers on any topic within legal philosophy. “In my capacity as a Murdoch law academic and a Vice President of the Society, I was fortunate enough to win the bid for Murdoch University to host the prestigious ASLP Conference,” said Dr Zimmermann. “We are expecting to attract the attention of leading academics in the field from Australia and beyond.” Conference speakers include Professor John Tasioulas, Quain Professor of Jurisprudence, University College London; Professor Kevin Toh, from the Department of Philosophy, San Francisco State University; and Professor Jane Stapleton from the ANU College of Law. Dr Zimmermann will be delivering a presentation entitled Possible links between Lutheranism, legal positivism and the legal profession under National Socialism, while his Murdoch University colleague Haydn Rigby will be speaking on The influence of evolutionary theory on legal theory. The book symposium will see the book Forgotten Justice: Forms of Justice in the History of Legal and Political Theory by Allan Beaver discussed by Associate Professor Jonathan Crowe from the University of Queensland, Associate Professor Matthew Harding and Dr Lael K Weis, both from Melbourne Law School. The conference and symposium will run from June 27 to June 29. Attendees can register online via the School of Law’s website.
