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). 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 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.
The fifth LLRN conference will be held online 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. An in-person conference is planned for 2023 in Warsaw.
The online conference will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Labour Law Research Network (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.
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.

The 4th LLRN Conference was held at the Faculty of Law of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso on June 23-25, 2019. For more information see also the Conference website.
