. Places are limited, and registrations will be closed when places have been filled up.
The Summer School on Law and Logic is the first course ever to provide a comprehensive introduction to the uses of logic in the law. It combines an introduction to the basic methods of formal logic, a discussion of their application to the law, and an in-depth analysis of the logical structures of legal knowledge and legal reasoning.
It aims at providing postgraduate law students and legal professionals with knowledge of the methods of formal logic, and the ability to apply those methods to the analysis and critical evaluation of legal sources and legal arguments. We think that a background in formal logic is today an essential prerequisite for engaging in legal theory, and can be very useful also for developing doctrinal legal research, working in legal informatics, and, more generally, in the practice of law.
The Summer School is jointly hosted by the European University Institute (Florence, Italy), and the Harvard Law School (Cambridge, Mass., U.S.A.). It is also sponsored by the Cardozo Law School (New York, N.Y., U.S.A.), Cirsfid-University of Bologna (Italy), the University of Groningen (the Netherlands) and the European Academy of Legal Theory.
Professors: Scott Brewer, Henry Prakken, Nino Rotolo, Giovanni Sartor, Peter Tillers
