Kadish Center for Morality, Law & Public Affairs

The Center for Morality, Law, and Public Affairs was conceived and endowed by Sanford and June Kadish in January 2000. The Kadish Center seeks to promote research and reflection on moral philosophical issues in law and public life, with special concern for the substantive aspects of criminal law.

The Kadish Center pursues its objectives in three ways. First, the Center sponsors formal lectures and research conferences to promote greater understanding of these issues among academic audiences and the wider public. Second, the Center supplies research support for graduate students in the Jurisprudence and Social Policy Program and occasionally for other scholarly visitors to Berkeley. Third, the Center organizes a Workshop in Law, Philosophy, and Political Theory and an annual seminar series to enable professors from around the country to present their work.
