The Law School is pleased to welcome Professor Brian R. Leiter, currently Professor of Law & Philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin Law School, as the newest member of our faculty beginning in Fall 2008. Professor Leiter’s area of interest is law and philosophy and, in addition to his prolific scholarship in the area, he authors popular academic blogs on the subject. We were fortunate to have Professor Leiter as a visiting professor at the Law School in 2006 and we are excited to have him return as a permanent member of our community. Professor Leiter will join other faculty with interest in law and philosophy, especially Professor Martha Nussbaum. His presence advances our goal of intellectual diversity and responsiveness to students' many academic and professional interests. Check back next fall for updates on the Center and on Professor Leiter.
