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 has organised a series of summer webinars (June - July 2020) and held three further seminars in June 2022. 


In addition to our conference and online seminars, the LLRN provides information about labour law-related activities to affiliated research centres and the public through this website, our Twitter (now 'X') account (@LabourLawRN) and a periodical update that we send to our Mailing List. You can request access to the Facebook Group called Labour Law Research Network by clicking here.
