The conference

Judges, lawyers and other legal professions

The conference will focus on the issue of legal professions and their methods across Europe and the world. Judges, lawyers and other legal professions have different developed differently from country to country and even now, we can find substantial differences in training, method, role and work.

Legal methodology, including the motivation of judicial decisions, lawyerly style and method of arguing cases needs to be studied in historical and comparative perspective to understand where we are now, and where we might be heading.
