We are pleased to invite you to participate in the international conference of PhD students and young researchers "The Interaction of National Legal Systems: Convergence or Divergence?". Conference will be held in Vilnius University Faculty of Law, 25-26 of April 2013 (address: Sauletekio av. 9, Vilnius, Lithuania).
Nowadays, there are no doubts that social relations are more and more actively overstepping previously existed boundaries. Globalisation, development of regional markets, intensive migration, rapid technological breakthroughs and many other factors inherent to post-modern societies influence relations between national states. This is why the research in interaction of national legal systems is extremely important. How the disappearance of social boundaries determines the convergence of national legal systems in private and public law? Or contrarily, are we able to identify opposite impact of divergence in particular fields of law? These and other questions important to the contemporary legal science will be subject-matter of the conference intended for PhD students and young researchers.
Target participants: PhD students and young researchers specialising in public law, private law, legal philosophy, theory and history, also researchers in other social sciences and humanities interested in the interaction of national legal systems.
