McMaster Graduate Conference
for Legal Theory

The third annual McMaster Graduate Conference for Legal Theory took place on May 15-17, 2012 and was, by all accounts, a resounding success.

The conference attracted well over 35 participants from all round the world most of whom presented papers on a wide range of topics.

A hearty thanks to: our participants; the many volunteers who helped make things run very smoothly; our generous and talented Departmental Administrative Coordinator, Kim Squissato, who once again rose to the occasion and provided much needed support and expertise; our distinguished keynote speakers, Professors Mark Murphy (Georgetown) and Jules Coleman (NYU; formerly Yale) for their stimulating talks and various other less formal contributions; and to our conference organizers, Geoff Callaghan and Otto Phillips.

A special word of thanks must go out to Otto, whose inspiration and dedication have been behind the conference since its inception in 2009. Without Otto, the annual McMaster Graduate Conference for Legal Theory might never have been. Thanks Otto – and good luck as you pursue the next phase of your graduate education in the Fall at our OLPP partner, Osgoode Hall Law School!
