Research unit


The Lab-Lex laboratory focuses its research on three main areas:

  1. The Vulnerability area relates to the understanding of the notion of vulnerability (polymorphic and unifying) and on the analysis of legal instruments associated with vulnerability (its treatment by the law and the implementation of these rules by a judge)
  2. The Governance area aims to study the meanings and use of the term governance (which applies to companies, associations, the state and international economic organisations) as well as its changes with relation to institutional evolutions:
    1. The Dispute area examines courts (in particular in relation to the heterogeneity of disputes and the development of mass disputes) and the management of risks (contractual, patrimonial, sanitary, natural, etc, outside of court).
