Conditional logics extend the language of classical propositional logic by means of a two-places modal operator which can be used to express, among others, counterfactual sentences or non-monotonic inferences.

In this talk I will introduce the proof theory of conditional logics by taking as case study the logic VC, introduced by David Lewis to model counterfactuals. I will present two proof systems for the logic: a labelled sequent calculus, which explicitly introduces in the syntax some information coming from the models for VC, and a sequent calculus obtained by enriching the structure of sequents. I will conclude by underlying the relationship between VC and classical modal logics.
