Title: Signs of the Law—The Genesis of Legal Norms from a Pragmatic Legal-Linguistic Perspective
Date: 5 September 2021
Organiser: Friedemann Vogel
The 2nd ILLA Colloquium for PhD Students will be held at the University of Alicante (Spain) on 5 September.
This colloquium was developed in the Heidelberg Research Group of Legal Linguistics—the oldest research group on legal linguistics in the world. The colloquium aims at providing attendees with an introduction to pragmatic legal linguistics. Furthermore, the colloquium is designed as a platform for international exchange between PhD students from all over the world.
The focus of this one-day event will be on the question of how legal norms are constituted, processed and contested through linguistic signs and other communicative practices. Investigating this question, the first part of the colloquium will be spent discussing fundamentally relevant texts. During the second part of the event, participants will give brief presentations of their current and thematically relevant dissertation projects.
Habilitation candidates are also encouraged to participate.
