A Small Symposium on “Russian Legal Discourse”
as part of the
18th Annual International Conference on Law, 12-15 July 2021, Athens, Greece
Sponsored by the 
Athens Journal of  Law

The Law Unit of ATINER, will hold a Small Symposium on “Russian Legal Discourse” as part of the 18th Annual International Conference on Law, 12-15 July 2021, Athens Greece sponsored by the Athens Journal of Law.

Legal discourse as a concept covers issues related to law that is characterized as being an artifact. Its substance, though, due its continuity and discreteness, is properly undetermined and constantly changing, exists in law in the form of legislation or legisprudence and legal practice or jurisprudence that are supported by auxiliary phenomena including legal science and other sciences related to law. The Russian legal discourse is quite different to what is generally represented as the western legal discourse. The purpose of the symposium is to offer academic opportunities to make presentations and discuss broadly without strict dogmatic boundaries on the issues related to Russian law. You may participate as presenter of one paper, chair a session or observer.
