Lawrence B. Solum University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
I'm a member of the law faculty at the University of Illinois Urbana/Champaign. My current projects include "Semantic Originalism" and "Virtue Jurisprudence: An Aretaic Theory of Law." I work in legal theory, the philosophy of law, and aspects of value theory and the philosophy of language connected to law. I am especially interested in legal formalism, especially Neoformalisms such as the New Originalism and in the connections between aretaic value theory and legal theory.
