Conference notification – Legal Method

On 23rd and 24th June 2016, a conference entitled ‘A Discourse on the Legal Method: Historical and Philosophical Influences on Legal Thinking’ will take place at the Moscow School of Social and Economic Sciences. This event is part of the series of conferences organised by the Groningen Circle (Milan 2013, Groningen 2014). The Circle comprises European scholars who have joined together in a project which aims to open a new pathway into the area of legal history, particularly Roman law, and legal philosophy in order to reveal the historical and philosophical foundations of the Western legal tradition. In so doing, the members of the Circle aim to create a strong link between the history and philosophy of private law on the one hand and the modern private law and lawyers on the other hand.
