International Award of Legal Culture 2020.

Workshop about Susan Haack's work

Since its foundation, the Chair of Legal Culture of the University of Girona has set out to establish an international award of Legal Culture to recognise the trajectory and contribution from jurists and researchers from other areas of knowledge   who have had a significant impact on the development of the legal culture and on the evolution of our institutions.


In light of this, we have decided to present the 2020 International Award of Legal Culture to Dr Susan Haack, for her entire career in the fields of epistemology, the philosophy of logic, the philosophy of law and the philosophy of science, in which she has published essential reference works, with a strong impact on the study of law.


To provide a framework for academic debate at the award ceremony, we will organise a two-day workshop during which the award-winning author will present two papers and five other researchers will present papers inspired by the work of Professor Susan Haack and its importance for the study of law. In the same context, we will present Susan Haack's latest book in Spanish: Filosofía del derecho y de la prueba. Perspectivas pragmatistas.


The registration to the workshop is free, but required for organisational purposes.
