2024 Conference Theme


The theme of the 2024 LRN Conference is Resilience. In times of turbulence, wars, climate
change and economic challenges, society and the legal system are put to the test. A general
definition for resilience in a legal context could be:

The ability of a legal framework or mechanism to continue filling its main function also under exceptional pressure or disrupting events, or return to a state where it can fulfill its function after such events. It can also be the ability of the law to support or enable this ability in another kind of system (social, economic, socio-economic, ecological, etc).

Resilience is a broad theme and the call for papers (below) should be understood broadly.
