Call for papers: Analytic Philosophy meets Legal Theory, Krakow 21-24 May 2020

Cancellation: Due to restrictions imposed by the relevant authorities on institutions of higher education in Poland, we have to cancel the Analytic Philosophy meets Legal Theory in the planned term  21-24 May 2020.
We are now working on the option of postponing the conference to the later date.
Meanwhile, there will be no registration opened.



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.
