Andrew Botterell

Bio

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 (1990), my Ph.D. from MIT (1998), and my J.D. from the University of Toronto (2006). During the 2006-7 term I clerked for the Honourable Madam Justice Louise Charron of the Supreme Court of Canada and currently serve as the Associate Editor of the Canadian Journal of Law & Jurisprudence.

My primary teaching and research interests are in philosophy of law broadly construed, with particular emphasis on tort and criminal law; and metaphysics. A complete list of my publications can be found here.

During the 2013-2014 academic year I will be a Visiting Professor at the Centre for Ethics at the University of Toronto.
