Mark D. White
Next weekend (March 11-12, 2011), I am honored to appear in a session on virtue ethics and the law at the Association for the Study of Law, Culture and Humanities meetings in Las Vegas. The session was graciously organized by Cimino Chapin, the subject of an earlier blog post, and the discussant is none other than Jennifer Baker, contributor extraordinaire to several of my projects (including Accepting the Invisible Hand, as previewed here).
The program can be found here; the session I am on is as follows:
Saturday, March 12, 2011, 1:45-3:30 PM
The Power, Purchase, and Pragmatism of Modern Virtue
Chair and Organizer: Chapin Cimino, Drexel University—Earl Mack School of Law
Discussant: Jennifer Baker, College of Charleston
- Chapin Cimino, Drexel University—Earl Mack School of Law, "Citizenship, the Campus Community, and Competing Rights: An Aristotelian Analysis"
- Ronald J. Colombo, Hofstra University School of Law, "Virtue and Corporate Governance"
- Mark D. White, College of Staten Island/CUNY, "The Virtues of Hercules"
Regarding my contribution, I will discuss the literature on judicial virtue, and argue that Ronald Dworkin's jurisprudence, as represented by his ideal judge Hercules, exemplifies the virtues that should be expected of a judge.
