The Legal Research Network (LRN) was founded in 2006 by the Faculties of Law of the Universities of Groningen, Turku and Uppsala. The Universities of Bristol, Budapest (ELTE), Ghent, Göttingen and Lille-Nord de France have since joined the network.
The Legal Research Network (LRN) aims at improving the international profile of its members, strengthening (thematic) research cooperation by its staff, and promoting the international scientific perspectives of its young researchers.
LRN is thematically a general network in law. The Annual Conference is organized around specific themes which are approachable from different fields of legal research.
