Law School Professor Brian Leiter has written a new essay on philosophy of law for the Encyclopedia Britannica—the first update to that entry in a half century. 

When the Encyclopedia Britannica decided to update its entry on “Philosophy of Law” for the first time in a half century, they contacted Brian Leiter, a Law School professor who specializes in moral, political, and legal philosophy and is known for his extensive writings on the jurisprudence of American legal realism, as well as work on the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche.
