On Thursday, April 15, at 4:30 pm, Room W326B, Visiting Professor Sheldon Leader (University of Essex, UK) will dialogue with Professor Olivier Moréteau (Director of the CCLS) on the following topic:
The boundaries of responsibility: individual, collective, and solidaristic
Our objective is to initiate a discussion of the principles that might help to draw boundary lines between three types of responsibility: individual, collective, and that demanded by social solidarity
We will briefly address three topics:
a/ the difference between these three types of responsibility
b/ the ethical case for each
c/ illustrations from the domains of corporate law and the law of insurance
This is a Prelude to a forthcoming Legal Diversity Dialogue Series, where a legal scholar (visitor or LSU) will dialogue with a scholar of another discipline (any discipline but law) having an interest in the law. The group Juris Diversitas (http://jurisdiversitas.blogspot.com) is a partner in the Series.
Refreshments will be provided.
