The conference aims to give graduate students and early career researchers the opportunity to discuss work in progress in a collaborative, productive and stimulating environment. Participants will have the chance to receive feedback from discussants, faculty members, other presenters, and attendees. We welcome contributions on any topic in legal, moral, and political philosophy, and we particularly encourage participation from students and researchers from historically under-represented backgrounds.
