Logic, language, and practical rationality are foundational topics in legal philosophy. They are usually discussed in the narrow frame of legal philosophy and general jurisprudence. Discussions about the practical import of research in legal philosophy, logic, language, and practical rationality are rare and unsystematic. The influence and consequences that philosophical discussion might have in legal doctrine, legal science, and legal practice have not been a prominent topic of jurisprudential inquiries in the last decades. The main objectives of the Special Workshop are, therefore, to investigate and discuss the importance of the philosophy of law and fundamental philosophical knowledge about law in legal practice, legal doctrine, and legal science

Tentative topics:
Is legal philosophy too far removed from legal practice?
What can legal philosophy teach Legal Practice and vice versa?
Aziz Huq, Frank and Bernice J. Greenberg Professor of Law, University of Chicago
Legal Philosophy and adjudication
Legal philosophy and the creation of Law
Legal philosophy and administrative Enforcement of Law
Logic and legal practice
Language and legal practice
Practical rationality and legal practice

Can legal philosophy handle technological change?
