Andrew Botterell


I am an Associate Professor at the University of Western Ontario, where I am jointly appointed to the Department of Philosophy and the Faculty of Law. I received my B.A. from McGill University, my Ph.D. from MIT, and my J.D. from the University of Toronto. During the 2006-7 term I clerked for the Honourable Madam Justice Louise Charron of the Supreme Court of Canada and currently serve as Co-Editor of the Canadian Journal of Law & Jurisprudence.

My primary teaching and research interests are in philosophy of law and metaphysics. A complete list of my publications can be found here.

During the 2013-2014 academic year I was a Visiting Professor at the Centre for Ethics at the University of Toronto. I have also volunteered with Academics Without Borders.
