Welcome to the Yale Law & Philosophy Society! Although the group is relatively new, we have grown rapidly over the past year and hope you will join our community. Please feel free to reach out with any questions -- we look forward to seeing you this fall!
The Yale Law and Philosophy Society (YLPS) serves as an informal social forum and point of intellectual exchange for all students interested in the intersection of law and philosophy. The Society's vision is broad in scope, inviting both the exploration of diverse issues throughout law and legal theory, as well as the engagement of perspectives from a wide range of philosophical fields and methodologies. YLPS is oriented toward a membership consisting mostly of law students with philosophical interests or backgrounds, but also includes graduate students from the philosophy department.
Please describe the organization's purpose and/or mission. Statements of Purpose should only be a few sentences long, at maximum. This information will be displayed as part of the group's public profile.
YLPS aims to offer both formal and informal activities for students interested in philosophy and law. The organization is committed to fostering engagement with legal-philosophical ideas by sponsoring reading groups, hosting guest speakers, and creating a social community on campus.
