Natasha Wheatley, On Hans Kelsen

This workshop takes up some of the central problems, methods, and ideas that have shaped the theory and study of the law over the course of the last century, by scholars, jurists, and reformers. Ideas to be explored include the proper roles of fairness and efficiency in law, the nature of legal authority and interpretation, the relationship between law and politics, and the intersections between law and other disciplines or modes of inquiry, including sociology, psychology, economics, history, and philosophy.
