Berliner Seminar Recht im Kontext

The Berliner Seminar Recht im Kontext provides a forum for testing new inquiries and approaches within a select group of interested scholars. German and international guests present their work at its regularly scheduled, monthly evening sessions. These lectures spawn intensive discussions, which are followed by a reception offering a chance for informal conversation.

Scholars of various disciplines with established interests in context-sensitive legal research are personally invited to take part in the sessions of the Berlin Seminar of Recht im Kontext. We also regularly invite practitioners interested in the scholarly encounter of law and its contexts - including attorneys, journalists and public administrators - to join us.

For three academic years, the lecture series focused on the relationship between Law and Digitalization.
