The Law and Logic Summer School is now taking applications for its tenth edition, which will take place from 27th June – 6th July 2022. The Law and Logic Summer School will provide participants with rigorous training in a wide variety of logical methods that can assist in the analysis of law for all kinds of legal analysts, including students, lawyers, judges and scholars. The overall framework for the course is the Logocratic Method, a systematic method for assessing the strengths and weaknesses of arguments, including, but not limited to, legal arguments. Application deadline: Sunday 01 May 2022 at 23:59 p.m. (CEST).
This eight-day course offers a detailed presentation of propositional and predicate deductive logic, as well as the use of logic for capturing representing deontic and Hohfeldian modalities, analogical and inductive reasoning and inference to the best explanation. It also presents some aspects of non-deductive reasoning in law, such as defeasible reasoning, including argumentation schemes.
Throughout the course, we pay careful attention to the way in which these methods of argument can assist legal analysis.
