Robert P. George is the McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence and the director of the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton University.

In his Pound Lecture entitled, “Modern Legal Philosophy,” Robert P. George will survey ideas and debates about the nature and functions of law, and the relationship between law and morality, in the tradition of Anglo-American jurisprudence beginning with Oliver Wendell Holmes’ famous lecture “The Path of the Law” presented in Boston on January 8, 1897. Among the movements he will discuss are legal realism, legal positivism, critical legal studies, and natural law theory. Among the thinkers he will engage, in addition to Holmes, are Karl Llewelyn, Jerome Frank, H.L.A. Hart, Lon L. Fuller, Ronald Dworkin, Roberto Unger, Joseph Raz, and John Finnis.

This annual lecture is named after Roscoe Pound, an American legal scholar and former dean of the University of Nebraska College of Law and Harvard Law School.

This program has been approved for 1.0 continuing education credit in Nebraska.
