Mission and Communications
The Labour Law Research Network was set up in 2011 by research institutes/centers from all over the world dedicated to the study of labour law. Our goal is to advance research in labour law and specifically to facilitate the dissemination of research work and encourage open discussion of scholarship and ideas in this field. All labour law scholars are welcome to join.
The LLRN holds a Biennial Conference to facilitate presentation of academic scholarship in labour law along with discussion and debate over topical issues in the field. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the LLRN is organising a series of summer webinars (June - July 2020), the first of which took place on 16 June 2020. A recording of the second seminar on 'A Proposal for a Transnational Labour Inspectorate' is available until 13 July here on:
In addition to our conference and online summer seminars, the LLRN provides information about labour law-related activities to affiliated research centres and the public through this website, our Twitter account (@LabourLawRN) and a periodical update that we send to our Mailing List. During the 2015 LLRN Conference in Amsterdam, some labour law academics established a Facebook Group called Labour Law Research Network which continues to be active. You can request access by clicking here.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are pleased to invite you to the fifth LLRN conference that will be held in Warsaw, Poland on June 27-29, 2021, hosted by the Faculty of Law and Administration of the University of Warsaw, and co-organised in conjunction with the University of Lodz.
The year 2021 is very special to Labour Law Research Network (LLRN). This is the 10th anniversary of the founding of LLRN. Over the last 10 years, LLRN institutional members have made tremendous contributions in research, teaching, and practice, resulting in enhancing understanding of current thinking in labour law.
The LLRN5 Poland conference will be the LLRN’s first conference held in the Central/Eastern Europe. We believe that joining in the fine tradition of LLRN conferences, by the members of this part of the global labour law scholarship, would constitute an invaluable opportunity to instil and consolidate the idea of a ‘boundaryless’ scientific cooperation and exchange among leading labour law scholars from all around the globe, in particular on issues such as labour law norms and institutions, new synergies, values and methodologies of contemporary labour law.
