An Introduction to Jewish Law

An Introduction to Jewish Law


Francois-Xavier Licari

Jewish law is a singular legal system that has been evolving for generations. Often conflated with Biblical law or Israeli law, Jewish law needs to be studied in its own right. An Introduction to Jewish Law expounds the general structure of Jewish law and presents the cardinal principles of this religious legal system. An introduction to modern Jewish law as it applies to the daily life of Jews around the world, this volume presents Jewish law in a way that answers all the questions that a student of comparative law would ask when encountering an unfamiliar legal system. Sources of Jewish law such as revelation, rabbinical and communal legislation, judicial decisions, and legal reasoning are defined and analyzed, and the authority of who decides what Jewish law is and why their decisions are binding is investigated.

29th World Congress 
of the 
International Association for Philosophy of Law and Social Philosophy (IVR) 
University of Lucerne
7 – 13 July 2019

Special Workshop: Legal Fictions Revisited 
Covenors: Kristin Y. Albrecht (University of Salzburg) and Karen Petroski (Saint Louis University)

Call for Papers
Fictions of various kinds remain powerful devices of legal argumentation and justification. 
Following the route opened by the special workshop on legal fictions at the IVR Congress 2011, as well as the resulting book and recent publications by such scholars as Simon Stern, we invite proposals for papers investigating some less-explored aspects of the subject, in particular the philosophical foundations, comparative examination, and historical aspects of legal fictions.

Is law a fiction or fictional system? If so, what is specific about legal fictions - or do they involve the same kind of fictionality as law itself? Is fictionality a phenomenon of language, ontology, and/or epistemology? Does fictionality presuppose an authorial intention? What does it presuppose about legal audiences?  What can we learn from the history of asking questions like these about law and fiction?  How much should lawyers, judges, and legislators know about these matters?  

Possible topics include:

I. Philosophy  
  • Fiction, deeming, and presumption in comparative perspective  
  • Fiction and definition 
  • Fiction and hypothesis, thought experiment, and planning  
  • Fiction and metaphor  
  • Fiction and truth 
  • Legal and aesthetic fictions

II. Comparative Law/Legal Theory  
  • Fictions in common law systems  
  • Fictions in civil law systems
  • The role of legal fictions in the development of law
 
III. History of Legal Philosophy
  • Jhering and Maine  
  • Kant and Vaihinger  
  • Kelsen and Vaihinger  
  • René Dekkers 
  • Oskar Buelow

Please send abstracts of no more than 500 words to Kristin Albrecht (kristin.albrecht@sbg.ac.at) and Karen Petroski (karen.petroski@slu.edu) by February 28, 2018.  

We will notify the authors of accepted proposals by March 15.  

We may schedule more than one meeting of this special workshop if the number and quality of proposed papers justify it.

Two groups have joined the Conference. Please send you proposals for Juris Diversitas or any of these two groups before/on 31 January 2018 by using the following link:

1.       The Southern African Legal Historians welcomes papers focusing on the Roots of Law, which may pertain to the development of law in any particular time (from the distant past to the near future) relating to roots, law and space or the impact of law on society, transformation and justice, relating, but not limited, to African legal traditions; European legal traditions; Anglo-American legal traditions; religious influences and Eastern legal influences.

2.       The NWU Faculty of Law celebrates 30 years since the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) has come into operation. The rights of the child have been celebrated all over the world, but what are their roots and how do the Convention and national laws function in this space of time. You are invited to submit proposals related (but not limited to) the successes and failures of the Convention, African customs and religious systems and children's rights, juvenile justice, national legislation, conflict, exploitation, social context and best interest of the child.

MORE INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE UNDER 'EVENTS'.

Call for Panel Proposals and Papers
ASLC annual meeting



The American Society of Comparative Law (ASCL) has just issued a call for proposals for (1) concurrent panels and (2) a works in progress conference to be held in association with the ASCL 2019 Annual Meeting, which will be held at the University of Missouri School of Law between Thursday, October 17, and Saturday, October 19, 2019.  

The event is open to ASCL and non-ASCL members.


The theme of the Annual Meeting is “Comparative Law and International Dispute Resolution Processes” and will feature presentations on how comparative law affects various types of cross-border conflict, including litigation, arbitration and mediation.  

Concurrent panels and works in progress papers need not fall within this general theme, although of course they may.  

Multilingual panel proposals will be considered as part of ASCL's mission to foster plurilingualism.


Information on the event, including the call for panel proposals and works in progress submissions, is available at: 
  


Proposals will be accepted until May 20, 2019.

Comparative Legal History

BOOK: Olivier MORÉTEAU, Aniceto MASFERRER, and Kjell A. MODÉER, eds., Comparative Legal History [Research Handbooks in Comparative Law series] (London: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2019). ISBN 9781781955215, £175.50




Edward Elgar is publishing a research handbook on comparative legal history.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Is comparative legal history an emerging discipline or a much-needed dialogue between two academic subjects? This research handbook presents the field in a uniquely holistic way, and illustrates how comparative law and legal history are inextricably related.

Cementing a solid theoretical grounding for the discipline, legal historians and comparatists place this subject at the forefront of legal science. Comprehensive in coverage, this handbook collates theory and method for comparative legal history, as well as discussing international legal sources and judicial and civil institutions. Particular attention is paid to custom and codification, contracts, civil procedure and ownership. By assessing the evolution of law across European, Asian, African and American environments from the pre-modern era to the nineteenth century, the chapters provide stimulating and enlightening cases of legal history through a comparative lens.

A centrepiece for this field of scholarship, this research handbook will be an essential resource for scholars interested in comparative law, legal theory and legal history, from both legal and social science backgrounds.
