Herbert Morris Lecture in Law & Philosophy


Sponsored by the Law & Philosophy Program at UCLA School of Law.

The Lecture is in honor of UCLA's Professor Herbert Morris, an eminent emeritus member of both the Law School and the Philosophy Department, for his contributions to the field of legal philosophy and for his contributions to the campus as a professor, dean, and interim provost.

The Seventh Herbert Morris Lecture in Law and Philosophy will take place on January 28, 2022 from 4:00 to 6:00pm, with an outdoor reception to follow. The lecture, "The Moral Landscape of Constitutional Justice -- Where Imperfect Duties Abound!" will be offered by Professor Lawrence G. Sager. 

Larry Sager is a Distinguished Visitor in the UCLA Law and Philosophy Program and the Alice Jane Drysdale Sheffield Regents Chair in Law at the University of Texas. He began his teaching career at UCLA, and taught for many years at NYU, where he helped found the Colloquium in Legal, Political, and Social Philosophy. He is a renowned scholar who has made important and field-defining contributions to the studies of constitutional law, free exercise, legal theory, and judicial procedure and practice.
