Analytic Philosophy meets Legal Theory [2021]

Krakow 30 September - 3 October 2021

30 September: Get-together [recomended arrival]
1-3 October: Conference [1 October; starts at 9:00]

This conference aims to bring together scholars from contemporary analytic philosophy and legal theory, working on connected issues with the hope of allowing for a lively interchange of ideas across those disciplines.
The themes we would like to particularly explore are: metaphysics of law, social ontology, nature of normativity, pragmatics of legal language, philosophy of language etc. We encourage submissions from both philosophers and legal theorists.

Keynote Speakers:
David Enoch (Jerusalem)
Timothy Endicott (Oxford)
Sally Haslanger (MIT)
Francois Recanati (Jean Nicod, Paris)
Stephen Neale (CUNY)

Invited Speakers
Luka Burazin (Zagreb)
Katarzyna Kijania-Placek (Jagiellonian University)
Francesca Poggi (Milan)
Veronica Rodriguez-Blanco  (Surrey)


The conference will be held in Hotel Wolski conference center – located in a quiet forest, just 15 minutes away from central Krakow.

To register for the conference, please use Evenbrite:

The conference will take place at the Wolski Hotel in Krakow. If you are going to stay there during the conference (which is the default and strongly recommended option for people from outside Krakow) you need to go to the following page:

There you will able to buy the package that best suits you: either a place in double or a triple room or a single room for yourself. The code for reservations should activate automatically, but just in case the system demands this code from you it is: “krakow2021”.

IMPORTANT NOTE: the system will show you that you are buying 2 places, but this is only a bug of the hotel reservation system: you will buy one place by clicking on the relevant package. So, if you want to buy two places you need to go through the procedure twice. If you want to buy a single room then just change the number of people to one (the price is the same) at the top of the page.
If you want to stay in a double or triple room and wish to share your room with someone who is buying their package separately then just tick “I have comment” section during the booking process and write a comment about your room-sharing preferences there (it is the Hotel which is responsible for room allocation, not the organizers).

The deadline for registration is: 13.09.2021
