Presentation at 3rd IAPL-MPI 2018 Summer School in Luxembourg
Our conference Frontiers in Civil Justice will be held on 16-17 November 2020. We will address four key issues in civil justice requiring a deeper and renewed reflection in light of their contribution of facilitating access to justice. These are the shaping of the interaction between formal and informal justice, the digitalization of consumer dispute resolution (ODR), the collectivizing and monetizing of civil litigation and efforts of bringing justice closer to citizens. The conference will bring together academics, policymakers, practitioners and representatives of civil society to critically reflect on the opportunities and possible drawbacks ensuing from these paramount developments.
The outline of the conference, including confirmed keynote speakers, is avaible here. Further details will be made available soon.
Call for Papers!
For the last part of the conference we welcome abstracts on the topic ‘Innovations in Civil Justice - Bringing Justice Closer to Citizens’. Please send in your abstract of max. 500 words before 31 July. Further details can be found here.
We will have great speakers and look forward to exciting debates. We hope to see you in Rotterdam!
We are recruiting!

Alexandre Biard (ERC postdoc) and Alina Ontanu participated in the 3rd IAPL-MPI Summer School entitled Privatizing Dispute Resolution and Its Limits that took place from July 1-4 in Luxembourg. Alexandre presented evidence that he collected on the impact of the Consumer ADR Directive on the quality of ADR entities in several EU Member States. Alina pleaded for a more comprehensive framework covering both court and out-of-court procedures so as to facilitate consumers’ access to justice in cross-border litigation. Presentations were followed by fruitful discussions with participants coming from all over the world. A book including all contributions will be published in early 2019.
