This is the first seminar in our annual Environmental Law Discussion Group, co-hosted by the Law Faculty. Please RSVP to if you would like to attend.

Professor Sidney Shapiro (Professor at the Wake Forest University School of Law) will discuss the first chapter of a forthcoming book (Oxford Press, 2013) on democracy, regulation, and philosophical pragmatism. The presentation will explain the pragmatic methodology, at one time the basis of policy discourse in the United States, and argue why it should be revived as a replacement for neoliberalism, the current dominant perspective.
