What is the relation between rule of law and legal reasoning? Which are the
necessary conditions required by the rule of law for an adequate legal
reasoning? Are judicial decisions fallible? Are there right answers to legal
questions? Can legal reasoning be objective when it must answer moral
questions? Are there legal facts? What kind of facts are legal facts? Do legal
facts suppose moral facts? Are legal facts independent from moral facts? Are
there moral facts? What kind of facts are moral facts? Can moral and legal facts
be identical to, reducible to, or constituted by natural facts? What are the
epistemic conditions which are required for obtaining suitable legal decisions
and right moral answers? These and related questions will be addressed by our
speakers from metaethical and legal philosophical perspectives. A compilation
book of the papers presented at the Workshop will be published in a Journal.
