This description is from the conference website:

Five years ago we began, with much enthusiasm, an editorial project with grand expectations for quality and modest ones concerning diffusion. Our aim was to start a book collection in the field of Philosophy of Law embracing both, translations of key books from other legal cultures, thus making them available to Spanish-speaking readers, as well as original works. Five years later the results have surpassed all diffusion forecasts and we honestly believe that they have played a part in the iusphilosophical debate.

Today, the collection is made up of more than thirty published volumes with eighteen more underway. Marcial Pons publishers in junction with the research groups in Philosophy of Law from the Universidad de Girona and the Universidad Pompeu Fabra (to whom the directors of the collection belong, Jordi Ferrer y José Juan Moreso)) are organizing an international conference commemorating the first fifty volumes which will take place the 20th , 21st and 22nd of May 2010 in the Spanish city of Girona.

Our aim is that the conference will be a meeting place for authors and readers of our books. For this reason twelve authors from the collection will be speakers at the event Dr. Robert Alexy, Dr. Juan C. Bayón, Dr. Brian Bix, Dr. Eugenio Bulygin, Dr. Bruno Celano, Dr. Jules L. Coleman, Dr. Riccardo Guastini, Dr. Brian Leiter, Dr. Jorge Luis Rodríguez, Dr. Frederick Schauer, Dr. Scott J. Shapiro, Dr. Wilfrid J. Waluchow. We have chosen the theme "neutrality and theory of Law" as the backbone of the speeches because it is one of the most frequently found, either directly or indirectly, in the books of the collection

Our objective is to offer an event of the utmost magnitude in the iusphilosophical debate that will gather the different legal traditions, addressed specifically toward the Hispanic-American community.
