A Theory of Justice: 50 Years Later 
This conference marks the 50th anniversary of John Rawls’ “A Theory of Justice,” which is widely considered the most influential work of political philosophy in the 20th century. Bringing together scholars in politics, philosophy and law, the program focuses on themes arising from Rawls’ work, including how justice is related to democracy, what distinguishes justice and legitimacy, how justice bears on questions of education and employment, and its implications for matters of race and religion.
The conference organizers are Blain Neufeld (Wisconsin, Milwaukee), Lori Watson (Washington University), and Micah Schwartzman (Virginia).
The Karsh Center is a nonpartisan legal institute at the University of Virginia School of Law that promotes civil discourse, civic engagement, ethics and integrity in public office, and respect for the rule of law.
The Center for Law & Philosophy serves as a hub for faculty who examine the philosophical problems that rest at the heart of each area of law. They consider whether moral and philosophical assumptions that structure current laws are justified, or are ripe for critique and revision.
