The Association of American Law Schools (AALS) recently announced the winners of its 2021 section awards for excellence in legal education. Professor Michael Moore has been honored with the Section on Jurisprudence Hart-Dworkin Award in Legal Philosophy, which is given annually to a scholar who has made significant and lasting contributions to the philosophical understanding of law.
Professor Moore is one of the country’s most prominent authorities on the intersection of law and philosophy, and widely regarded as the country’s leading theoretician of criminal law. Over an academic career spanning more than 50 years Moore has published more than 140 books, articles, editorials, and other pieces of scholarship. He has presented hundreds of lectures and papers around the world in law, jurisprudence, political theory, legal philosophy, political science, economics, philosophy, psychology, psychiatry, and neuroscience, including most recently endowed, named lectures at Duke, Dartmouth, Columbia, Tel Aviv, Pennsylvania universities, as well as the annual Public Philosophy Lecture and the annual Center for Advanced Studies Lecture at the University of Illinois. He is on the board of editors of numerous journals in law and in philosophy and for a decade served as editor-in-chief of the journal, Law and Philosophy.
The College of Law congratulates Professor Moore on his achievement.
