The Washington University School of Law and the Washington University Law Review hosted the Exploring Jurisprudence Symposium on October 20, 2017. This symposium revolved around Professor Brian Z. Tamanaha’s book, A Realistic Theory of Law (Cambridge 2017). The book articulates a theory of law as a social institution that evolves over time in connection with surrounding social, cultural, economic, political, technological, and ecological circumstances. Professor Tamanaha revives a largely forgotten theoretical perspective, addressing issues like what law is, how law has changed in the modern age, and how to account for the plurality of coexisting legal forms that marks many societies today. This symposium featured some of the nation’s preeminent professors, legal scholars, and other academics to reflect on the theoretical perspective outlined in Professor Tamanaha’s book, and legal theory more generally.

The papers generated from the symposium were featured in Volume 95, Issue 5 of the Washington University Law Review.
