The Department of Legal Theory (Faculty of Law, Masaryk University, Brno) presents the biannual International Conference on Alternative Methods of Argumentation in Law Oct. 27, 2017.
Abstracts are due July 31, 2017.
Objectives of the Conference:
The main aim of the ARGUMENTATION 2012 conference is to bring together legal practitioners and people from academia to discuss the topics related to different approaches and techniques employed in legal argumentation. One of the core characteristics of the conference is its interdisciplinarity and thus, not only purely legal issues are discussed. On the contrary, they are often connected to the problems from philosophy, logic, sociology, computer science, artistic disciplines, etc.
The conference consists of four workshops/streams each specialized in a specific and unique method of studying legal argumentation:
- Formal Methods in Legal Reasoning
- Law and Literature
- Law and Language
- Visualization of Law
Every submission will be reviewed by two or three reviewers and the author will be provided with detailed feedback as well as the list of suggestions for minor improvements to be implemented before it is published. The process adheres strictly to the highest standards of double-blind review.
The individual paper should not exceed 30.000 characters and it can include tables and figures. The Harvard style of referencing is preferred but not strictly required. The paper may be submitted in one of the following formats: .rtf, .odt, .doc, .docx and .tex.
The accepted papers are going to be published in pre-conference proceedings by Masaryk University Press (Argumentation 2011 Proceedings). The publisher shall not claim exclusive rights to the papers and authors are encouraged to offer them to the public within the open access regime (e.g. SSRN).
