Description

The Internationalists: and their Plan to Outlaw War

Professor Scott Shapiro


Charles F. Southmayd Professor of Law and Professor of Philosophy, Yale Law School

Professor Scott Shapiro is the Charles F. Southmayd Professor of Law and Professor of Philosophy at Yale Law School. He joined the Yale Law faculty in July 2008 as a professor of law and philosophy. He previously taught law and philosophy at the University of Michigan and before that, was a professor of law at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. His areas of interest include jurisprudence, international law, constitutional law and theory, criminal law, family law, philosophy of action, and the theory of authority. He is the author of Legality (2011) and editor (with Jules Coleman) of The Oxford Handbook of Jurisprudence and Philosophy of Law (2002). He earned B.A. and Ph.D. degrees in philosophy from Columbia University and a J.D. from Yale Law School, where he was senior editor of The Yale Law Journal. He and Professor Oona Hathaway have recently completed “The Internationalists: How a Radical Plan to Outlaw War Remade the World,” a history of international law as it has evolved from the 17th century through the present, and the topic on which Professor Shapiro will be speaking during this lecture. You can find an interesting review of the book here.
