Osgoode Hall Law School will host the annual ‘Or ‘Emet Lecture on Jan. 26 when Oxford University Professor Leslie Green presents “Sovereignty vs. Sovereignty” at 12:30pm in the Ignat Kaneff Building, Room 2027.
Green is a professor of the philosophy of law at the University of Oxford, where he is a Fellow of Balliol College. He also holds a part-time position as professor of law and Distinguished University Fellow at Queen’s University. He was on the faculty of Osgoode Hall Law School for many years, and has been a visiting professor at the Berkeley, NYU, Texas and University of Chicago law schools. He writes and teaches in the areas of jurisprudence, constitutional theory, and moral and political philosophy.
The ‘Or ‘Emet Fund was established in 1976 to promote the study of law in the broadest sense. The fund seeks to promote through public discussion, research and scholarly writing, public and professional appreciation of the significance of religion, ethics, culture and history in the development of the legal system.
“‘Or ‘Emet” means the light of truth. In 2010, the Nathanson Centre pooled its resources with the ‘Or ‘Emet Fund to ensure the lecture would be delivered on an annual basis. As a result, the themes explored in the lecture are now also connected to the mandate of the centre.
