Faisal is a joint JD/PhD student (though he received his JD in 2023). His philosophical and other academic interests are wide-ranging, but he plans to write his dissertation on a topic in philosophy of law. Specifically, he argues that all adults stand in a fiduciary relationship with the children with whom they interact. This includes parents, but also all other adults—for example, teachers, camp counsellors, or even kidnappers—with a child in their care. This project draws on Kant’s account of parental authority in the Doctrine of Right.
