AMINTAPHIL is the American Section of the International Association for Philosophy of Law and Social Philosophy.

The AMINTAPHIL book series considers the philosophical foundations of law and justice from the perspectives of academic philosophy, practical political science and applied legal studies. The series dedicates each volume to the most pressing contemporary problems in legal theory and social justice. AMINTAPHIL holds biennial meetings of leading scholars in philosophy, law, and politics to discuss the philosophical basis of vital questions. The AMINTAPHIL volumes present the ultimate results of these discussions.
