Conference Description:

The Law Unit and the History Unit of ATINER will hold a Stream on “Legal History”, 16-19 July 2018, Athens, Greece as part of the 15th Annual International Conference on Law sponsored by the Athens Journal of Law and the Athens Journal of History.

The purpose of the interdisciplinary miniature stream is to introduce such legal institutions that have an effect on the development of the internal judiciary systems of different countries and are much in evidence in the contemporary legal reforms. The combined examination of history and law can draw the attention of the legislators and legal historians of the 21st Century to the importance of such legal institutions which, if observed from the point of view of legal history, can assist modern codification. The historical legal institutions appearing in the law currently in effect, with the aid of a certain legal “restoration”, can help their understanding, however it does not simply require some sort of theoretical, dogmatic examination but also the analysis of the legal practice and the praxis. Due to the topic of the interdisciplinary stream, this may not only be interesting for people working in the field of law or legal history, but can also get the attention of historians and scientists and researchers working on other, various fields. Through the complex and comparative assessment of the different branches of law, we can come up with a general picture on the development and the role in contemporary legal development of each and every legal institution.

Fee structure information is available on www.atiner.gr/2018fees.

Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized: A pragmatic symposium (as organized in Ancient Athens but fine tuned to synchronous ethics), a special one-day educational island tour, a Mycanae and island of Poros visit, an Athens educational walking tour, an one-day visit to Delphi and an ancient Corinth and Cape Sounion visit. Details of the social program are available here.

The association was established in 1995 as an independent world association of Academics and Researchers. Its mission is to act as a forum where Academics and Researchers from all over the world can meet in Athens, in order to exchange ideas on their research, and to discuss future developments in their disciplines.

The organizing and hosting of International Conferences and Symposiums, the carrying out of Research, and the production of Publications are the basic activities of ATINER. Since 1995, ATINER has organized more than 400 International Conferences and other events, and has published close to 200 books. In 2012, the Association launched a series of conference paper publications (click here), and at the beginning of 2014, it introduced its own series of Journals (click here).

Academically, the Association is organized into seven Divisions and 37 Units. Each Unit organizes at least an Annual International Conference, and may also undertake various small and large research projects.
