Prof Rachael Walsh will present 'Constitutions, Property, and Judicial Assessments of the Common Good' as the fifth event of The Common Good Project's Conversation Series exploring the question 'What is the Common Good?'

The Common Good Project seeks to foster a discussion on the relationship between law and the common good. The Project begins its efforts by exploring the common good from an array of perspectives. The Project hosts a weekly conversation series with legal theorists, philosophers, policy makers, economists, and others. 

Prof Walsh will discuss the role of property in the common good and how common good considerations have factored into constituional and judical views of property.
