The dark side of the law

The Theme:
Is law inherently good, reasonable, just? Has it always been associated with positive values in all cultures, at all times? Has it always that distinctive flavour of soundness/seriousness that we commonly associate with all things legal?

Juris Diversitas invites you to a journey across the entire spectrum of uncommon legal epiphanies, seeking instances when the law has been or was believed to be evil, odd, bizarre, fantastic or absurd, ridiculous, esoteric, psychoactive or psychotrope – exploring the dark side of the law in time and space, to observe its many hidden facets.

Panel proposals and interdisciplinary presentations are strongly encouraged, as is the participation of doctoral students and scholars from outside of the discipline of law. While parallel sessions featuring three presentations of twenty-minute each will be the pattern, more creative arrangements are encouraged.

Proposals should be in English or in French. Proposals of circa 250 words (or 1000 words for panel proposals with three or more speakers) should be submitted to Professor Salvatore Mancuso at: by December 31, 2019, with a short biography paragraph listing major or relevant publications. Make this a single Word document with minimal formatting, so that proposal and biography can be copied easily into the conference program.

Registration Fees:
€200 or €125 for Juris Diversitas members who paid their 2020 dues. Special rate for young scholars under the age of thirty coming the first time and for scholars in developing nations: €150 or €75 for Juris Diversitas members who paid their 2020 dues. Note that fees do not cover travel, accommodation, or the conference dinner (€50).
