Prof Thomas Pink will present 'Nartural Law and Why Do We Need the State?' as the third 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.
