Call for Applications: 4th IAPL-MPI Summer School, July 2020

Under the direction of Professor Eduardo Oteiza (La Plata National University, Argentina) and Professor Burkhard Hess (Max Planck Institute Luxembourg for Procedural Law), the 4th edition of the IAPL–MPI Summer School will take place at the MPI Luxembourg on 27-30 July 2020.

The Summer School aims at bringing together outstanding young
post-Doc researchers dealing with international and comparative procedural law
as well as with other relevant dispute mechanisms for civil disputes. By way of
exception, researchers at the very final stage of their Ph.D. project may also
be admitted.

In 2020, the Summer School will focus on the interplay of global
tendencies with local traditions in procedural law
. This interplay
may be analyzed from different perspectives, such as the cross-fertilization
in lawmaking processes
and between
regulatory concepts
or the impact
of innovative methods and tools
in procedural law. The Summer School
also intends to reflect on the cultural dimension of litigation and dispute
mechanisms and on the role of local culture in shaping the
approach to procedural law.

The application form and further information on the Summer
School’s research focus are available here.

The deadline for applications is 31 January 2020.
