The doctoral students of the Law School of Sciences Po (Paris) are pleased to announce the ninth edition of the Graduate Conference, which will take place during Sciences Po’s yearly SDI (Semaine Doctorale Intensive).

The conference will address the following topic:

DOES LAW INVENT REALITY?

THE NINTH GRADUATE CONFERENCE: AN OVERVIEW
Law is an institution that regulates political power and, as a discipline, orders the main interactions of society, defining them within the fiction of its language. In doing so, it is more of a subject than an object, as it tells the story of "reality", But does law only transcribe reality? Doesn't it also have a creative effect? It would seem that the legal narrative oscillates between transcription and creation, between integration and interpretation. The objective of this conference is to question this permeability of the law, understood as the child of modernity. Modernity can be perceived as the myth of "scientific objectivity, technical efficiency and economic profitability". As a depositary of this modern paradigm, law participates to this mythology, and in doing so, establishes itself as a "world builder". Can law have a reflexive approach to this mythology? Conversely, is it not forced to comply with this mythology, to adapt, thus always making law lag behind reality?
