OPPORTUNITY: Doctoral Research Position at the Max-Planck Institute for European Legal History

Juris Diversitas - jeu, 2014-08-07 09:56
Call for Doctoral Research Position at the Max-Planck Institute for European Legal History, Frankfurt, within the International Max Planck Research School on Retaliation, Mediation and Punishment  (REMEP) (deadline  October, 1st)The Max Planck Institute for European Legal History in Frankfurt/Main offers one doctoral research position within the area of Legal History as of 1st November 2014 or later.

This doctoral position is granted in the context of the interdisciplinary program of the International Max Planck Research School on Retaliation, Mediation, Punishment (IMPRS REMEP). The research school aims to attract young researchers educated in law (in this case in particular legal history) or historical sciences.


The doctoral student will carry out his or her studies in Frankfurt. He or she will participate inthe training program offered by the IMPRS REMEP and can make use of the facilities and infrastructure of the Max Planck Institute for European Legal History. The interdisciplinary curriculum requires participation in several joint seminars to be conducted together with the doctoral students who are affiliated with the IMPRS REMEP partner institutes in Halle/Saale and Freiburg. During these seminars, all students shall achieve cross-disciplinary knowledge in order to develop a common understanding of the overall research agenda and to be able to mutually understand and discuss their doctoral theses from the perspectives of all relevant disciplines. Working language of the training program is English. A cross-disciplinary dissertation project may be co-supervised by a member of the academic staff from a partner institute.
The research agenda of the REMEP has its focus on the fundamental question common to the disciplines of social sciences and humanities regarding how peace and social order are negotiated, constructed, maintained and re-gained. In particular, in the context of conflict and post-conflict societies, traditional approaches to reconciliation and mediation are being adopted, amending, and – partially – replacing, well-established systems of punishment mainly based on concepts of retaliation (see on this http://www.remep.mpg.de/)
The doctoral research project to be conducted in Frankfurt shall focus on basic questions in the field of legal history, from the 16th to the 20th century and should show a distinct interconnection to the current research focus areas and the research fields of the Max Planck Institute for European Legal History as outlined on the homepage of the institute (http://www.rg.mpg.de/en/forschungsprofil.cfm).
At the moment, we are developing a working group on the Legal History of Ibero-America, especially interested in questions of the evolution of the judicial system in Latin America with particular attention to the way the judicial system reacts on cultural diversity. Research projects in this field are especially welcome. They might concentrate on the current transformations in this system, integrating historical perspectives, such as the use of historical arguments by the actors, or be dedicated to historical research on these transformations in colonial period, or 19th and 20thcentury.
Proposals with the emphasis on a theoretical issue are welcome, too. Applicants are expected to develop their research questions independently, and to specify those in their proposal. Proposals with a comparative perspective and/or an inter-disciplinary approach will be considered with priority.

ARTICLE: Duve on German Legal History: National Traditions and Transnational Perspectives

Juris Diversitas - jeu, 2014-08-07 08:45
Thomas Duve's 'German Legal History: National Traditions and Transnational Perspectives' is available on SSRN. Duve is the Director of the Max Planck Institute for European Legal History. The article will be published in the upcoming issue of our journal Rechtsgeschichte-Legal History. The abstract reads:

In this article, I review select institutional and analytical traditions of Legal History in 20th century Germany, in order to put forth some recommendations for the future development of our discipline. A careful examination of the evolution of Legal History in Germany in the last twenty-five years, in particular, reveals radical transformations in the research framework: within the study of law, there has been a shift in the internal reference points for Legal History. While the discipline is opening up to new understandings of law and to its neighboring disciplines, its institutional position at the law departments has become precarious. Research funding is being allocated in new ways and the German academic system is witnessing ever more internal differentiation. Internationally, German contributions and analytic traditions are receiving less attention and are being marginalized as new regions enter into a global dialogue on law and its history. The German tradition of research in Legal History had for long been setting benchmarks internationally; now it has to reflect upon and react to new global knowledge systems that have emerged in light of the digital revolution and the transnationalization of legal and academic systems. If legal historians in Germany accept the challenge these changing conditions pose, thrilling new intellectual and also institutional opportunities emerge. Especially the transnationalization of law and the need for a transnational legal scholarship offers fascinating perspectives for Legal History.

CFP: Doctoral Seminar by Prof. Emily Kadens (KU Leuven, October 3rd 2014)

What: Doctoral Seminar by Prof. Emily Kadens The Trouble with Custom followed by paper presentations by early-stage scholars Where:  Museumzaal MSI 02.08, Mgr Sencie-Institute, Erasmusplein 2, Leuven (B) When: October 3rd 2014, 9.00am-5.00pm 
Deadline: August 25th 2014 (send an email to: lectio@kuleuven.be
Historians of all types take for granted that something called "custom" existed. Then they use the term lazily, as did people in the pre-modern era, to refer to many types of legal rules and norms. But if we take seriously the Roman law definition adopted by the medieval jurists that custom is repeated behavior over time to which the majority of the community has tacitly consented to be bound, then how did this custom work? How was it formed? How did it evolve over time? What effect did writing have on it? What was its relationship to enacted and learned law? Is the Roman concept of custom and its reality in practice the same as the German distinction between Gewohnheitsrecht and Rechtsgewohnheit? And, most fundamentally, did custom as defined by the Roman law actually ever exist at all? If not, why did the jurists spend so much energy debating its intricacies? 
On the occasion of the presentation of LECTIO’s new book series, Professor Emily Kadens (Northwestern University School of Law, Chicago) will deliver a public lecture on Thursday 2 October entitled ‘The Intellectual History of Custom’. In addition, on Friday 3 October she will lead a seminar on ‘The Trouble with Custom’. 
After an introductory session by Professor Kadens, the seminar will provide the opportunity to selected doctoral and post-doctoral scholars to present their research during a paper session and to discuss it with Professor Kadens and the other participants. We particularly welcome paper proposals that deal with one of the following topics: 1. The relationship between custom as it worked in daily life and the legal theory of custom; 2. The use of custom as an argument in law, philosophy, theology, philology, history, etc.; 3. The interaction between legal history and intellectual history Interdisciplinary approaches and case studies that illustrate these topics from a historical or present day perspective are an asset. Successful applicants are expected to give a 10-minute ‘Work-in-Progress’ talk in English followed by a 20-minute discussion. 
A paper (max. 10 pages) and a short CV should be submitted no later than 25 August 2014 to lectio@kuleuven.be 
For organizational purposes, scholars who want to attend the seminar without presenting a paper are also asked to register before that date. 
All participants of the doctoral seminar will receive a reading assignment by the end of August 2014.

BOOK: Comparative Law and International Organisations

Juris Diversitas - jeu, 2014-07-31 06:07
We're pleased to note the publication of Colin Picker, Lukas Heckendorn Urscheler, and Daria Solenik (eds), Comparative Law and International Organisations: Cooperation, Competition and Connections (2014) by Schulthess.


The book was the fruit of a symposium held at the Swiss Institute of Comparative Law in 2010, a spin-off of our Juris Diversitas Conference there in 2009 (resulting in Comparative Law and Hybrid Legal Traditions):

As international organizations consist of member states with different legal orders and are generally active in many different legal systems, it seems obvious that comparative law is of relevance. Furthermore, with the growing importance of international organizations, analyzing the interrelationship between the two is therefore of utmost importance....

The symposium brought together academic scholars, including international organization and comparative law experts, and participants from the European Court of Human Rights, European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice, Hague Conference on Private International Law, ICC Commission on Arbitration, International Criminal Court, and the UND.

CONFERENCE: "Understanding legal reasoning: a role for history and philosophy in modern private law"(Groningen, 11-12 September 2014)

WHAT: Conference on the theme "Understanding legal reasoning: a role for history and philosophy in modern private law"
WHERE: Congreszaal, Het Kasteel,Melkweg 1, 9718 EP Groningen
WHEN: Thursday 11th September 2014 3:00-5:00 pm; Friday 12th September 2014 9.30 am -4.45 pm
The Groningen Centre for Law and Governance (GCL) and the Department of Private and Notarial Law of the Faculty of Law of the University of Groningen, will organize the conference Understanding Legal Reasoning, A Role for History and Philosophy in Modern Private Law on 11 and 12 September 2014.

all information hereConference themeThe Connection of Private Law with History and PhilosophyThe privileged flow of communication which used to link private lawyers to legal historians and philosophers is nowadays reduced to a trickle. Today, most private lawyers, influenced by a European trend in higher education which encourages specialisation at the expense of foundational subjects, ask themselves why historical and philosophical modules have not yet been removed from the academic curricula in favour of legal subjects perceived as more in line with current developments.Yet, the European legal systems were developed by jurists who were well aware of the historical and theoretical roots of their science. For example, the Pandectists, the forefathers of the influential German civil code, developed German law largely on the basis of Roman law. Even the English common law contains clear examples of the fruitful relationship linking private law to history and philosophy. Thus, William Blackstone, the author of the Commentaries on the Laws of England – arguably the most systematic and certainly the most influential analysis of English law – and the first Vinerian Professor of English Law at Oxford University, was an excellent classical scholar.Whereas the detachment of private law from historical and philosophical investigations has its roots in the eighteenth and nineteenth century, it is during the twentieth century that the fading interest for historical and philosophical studies in Europe becomes an indisputable fact. The demise of Roman law as a system of living law, the expansion of commercial law after the Second World War, the pressure on higher education institutions to produce as many lawyers as possible in the shortest possible time: these are just some of the factors which might have contributed to the decline of the productive cross-fertilisation. For their part, legal historians and philosophers bear their share of responsibility for the present situation: beyond the lively discussion concerning the cultural and legal roots European private law, there have been few attempts to include private lawyers in the modern theoretical and historical debates and to highlight the practical significance of foundational subjects for the enhancement of the legal skills.

Supporting the DialogueThe basic message that this conference aims to convey is that it is not only possible, but also useful for private lawyers from both academia and practice to foster the dialogue with historians and philosophers. Private lawyers from England, The Netherlands, Scotland, and South Africa with an expertise in legal history and philosophy will show through a variety of examples how these subjects can help the private lawyers.The ApproachRather than offering a stage to theorists for a mutual exchange of ideas, this conference will highlight the importance of methodology for the support of legal analysis in private law. Its message is simple and bold: by opening one’s mind to different methodological approaches, one will become a better private lawyer.The proposed methodology enlarges the analytical tools at the operator’s disposal. It will offer to the private lawyer the possibility to examine legal questions from a different perspective. In so doing, it will enable the lawyer to present a more convincing case – whether it be in an academic theatre, in a scientific paper, or in a court of justice. In this sense, understanding legal reasoning is not a self-contained exercise, but an investigation with both practical and theoretical implications.The Groningen CircleThe conference is part of a wider European project. In 2011, a Circle was founded in Groningen by academics from five European higher education institutions and practising lawyers worried for the detachment of contemporary private law from its cultural and historical sources. To counteract these developments, the Circle adopts the concept of ‘Law As an Open System’ (LAOS). The ‘openness’ of law implies the relevance of non-legal principles on the intellectual process through which the lawyer construes and understands legal mechanisms. The methodological considerations that can be evinced from the past offer an important contribution to an all-round cultural formation of the lawyer. The Circle aims to offer a forum for discussion to historians, philosophers and private lawyers to promote the reinstatement of the old connections.

Présentation éditeur
Les XVIIIe et XIXe siècles ont vu éclore des talents de science et de droit. Les mathématiques, la botanique, la géologie, la physique, la géographie seront des motifs d’évasion vers les secrets du monde ou les armes des hommes. Le droit est l’une de ces armes : l’éprouvette ou le compas vont être posés aux côtés d’arrêts de Cours de justice ou de livres de droit.Il s’agit d’échapper à l’obscurité et à l’irrationalité. L’expérience joue un rôle considérable. Il n’est plus possible de croire sans voir. Il n’est plus possible de dire sans garantir. La garantie passe (également) par des droits. Il n’est plus possible d’expérimenter ou d’opérer sans le respect de la dignité ou de l’individualité.Le parcours n’est pas sans heurts. On se dispute, on se ferraille, on s’empoigne pour accepter ce qui paraît naturel au droit français du XXIe siècle. L’homme ne peut être un outil de la science sans son consentement et le respect d’un ordre (qui va devenir public).Il n’est pas étonnant que la science et le droit s’associent ou qu’ils trouvent des chemins pour s’entretenir. Tous deux sont des causes de remue-ménage. Le cerveau aime se mettre à la disposition des incertitudes. Il est (souvent) prêt à s’installer dans l’ombre des complications.Certains hommes ont pourtant arraché cet organe humain qu’est notre machine à penser des griffes de la bêtise.

CONFERENCE: Treaty Breaches. The Obligatory Force of Diplomacy and Its Limitations. (Munster, 17-19 September 2014)

HSozUKult announced an interesting conference hosted by Prof. Martin Kintzinger (Münster) on the legal history of medieval and early modern international relations. Program and platform text below:

Welche Brechungen und Verwerfungen bewirken kulturelle, mediale und soziale Grenzen auf dem Feld der vormodernen diplomatischen Interaktion? Welche Bedeutung besitzen sie für deren symbolische Inszenierung? Und welche Rolle spielen diese Grenzen dort, wo diplomatische Verbindlichkeit infragegestellt wird – kurz: Wo Verträge gebrochen werden? Mit diesen Fragen beschäftigt sich das von Prof. Dr. Martin Kintzinger geleitete DFG-Projekt „Symbolische Kommunikation und kulturelle Differenz. Visualisierung interkultureller Diplomatie im westeuropäischen Spätmittelalter“, das vom 17.-19. September 2014 in Münster seine Abschlußtagung veranstaltet. Unser besonderes Interesse gilt der Erzeugung von Verbindlichkeit und den Problemen, die dabei auftreten. Im Rahmen der Abschlußtagung werden wir unterschiedliche Perspektiven auf diesen Problemkreis bündeln, indem wir den „Bruch des Vertrags“ sowie seine Antizipationen und Nachwirkungen in den Blick nehmen. Die Beiträge sind auf drei Feldern angesiedelt: 1. Normative Auseinandersetzung mit Vertragsschlüssen und –brüchen: Explizite und implizite Handlungsnormen; juristische, ethische, philosophische Diskurse zu Vertragsschluß und Vertragsbruch. 2. Phänomenologie des Vertragsbruchs in vormodernen Gesellschaften. 3. Probleme der Verbindlichkeitserzeugung über kulturelle Grenzen hinweg.
