Synesthesia of Law Conference

Princeton University campus · Presented by: Princeton University

What is the role of law in structuring, orienting and perpetuating the multiplicity of conflicts that shape our public and private life? What function does law play in structuring and orienting the ethical dimensions of the multiplicity of conflicts that shape our public and private life? How, if at all, might law serve to relieve and mitigate them? These are the overarching questions addressed by this new collaboration between Princeton University and Sciences Po Law School.
