Dissertation Title: Reflections on Coherence in Law
Doctoral Supervisor: Professor Jeremy Waldron
Meir Yarom is a JSD candidate at New York University School of Law, interested in legal theory with a focus on analytical jurisprudence. His current research explores the theory and normative implications of the systematic nature of law, drawing particularly on the concepts of coherence and consistency. His dissertation, Reflections on Coherence in Law, reconceptualizes coherence and applies the concept to theories of law and adjudication. He is also interested in moral and political theory more broadly, especially deontic logic and the philosophical roots of normativity and social action.
