Methodological Pluralism in European Law - First Max Planck Law Conference for Young European Scholars

14 July 2022
15 July 2022

The Max Planck Institute Luxembourg for Procedural Law in cooperation with the Arbeitskreis Europäische Integration e.V. will host the first Max Planck Law Conference for Young European Scholars on “Methodological Pluralism in European Law”. The conference wants to bring together young scholars and create a forum for “new voices” of European legal research. It attempts to delve more deeply into the question of methodologies of contemporary European law research and map the multiplicity of approaches that are applied (or possibly may be applied) in this domain. A special focus will lie on current crises and challenges of European law methodology.

The conference is addressed to Postdocs and PhD Candidates who work on European law topics, as well as the late-stage students who want to pursue a PhD in European law. The call was open to all such researchers interested in European law research and (legal) methodology, including (but not limited to) affiliates of Max Planck Institutes.

The conference is organized by the Max Planck European Law Group, a newly established cooperation between (Senior) Research Fellows of different Legal Max Planck Institutes working on European Law.
