The workshop will discuss new insights in the interaction between logic and law, and more precisely the study of different answers to the question: What role does logic play in legal reasoning?

It will present both current challenges and historical perspectives in the relation between logic and law. The perspectives to be discussed involve the interface of the following studies:

Foundational studies

Logical Principles and Frameworks


Reasoning in Deontic Contexts


Legal practice and Computer-Based Modelisations

Argumentation Theory

Historical perspectives

Legal reasoning in Ancient Roman, Arabic, Jewish and Far-East contexts 

Other contexts


The submissions should contribute to the development of those perspectives by the discussion of subjects such as:

Analogical Reasoning in Law
Deontic Logic and Law
Non-Monotonic Reasoning and Law
Defeasible Reasoning and Law
Argumentation Theory within legal Contexts
Epistemic Logics and Law
Joergensen's Dilemma
Hypothetical Reasoning and Law
Proof-Theory and Legal reasoning
Reliabilty, Epistemic Logics and Legal Reasoning
Probability and Legal Reasoning
Contributed talks should not exceed a duration of 30 minutes including discussion. A one-page abstract should be sent via email before 5. October 2017 to: nordtveitkvernenes at gmail.com <mailto:nordtveitkvernenes at gmail.com>
