EUTOPIA Connected Learning Community Legal History Peak Event in Brussels

On March 14-15, the EUTOPIA Connected Learning Community Legal History will meet in Brussels for the Peak Event 2024. Participants will work on the theme Connectedness in Legal History.

Students from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Prof. Frederik Dhondt), CY Paris University (Prof. Caroula Argyriadis-Kervégan), the University of Ljubljana (Prof. Katja Skrubej), the University of Warwick (dr. Rosie Doyle) and Nova University of Lisbon (Prof. Cristina Nogueira da Silva) will work together, both virtually and in-person around the theme Connectedness in legal history. We will focus on multilevel governance, legal transfers, circulation of ideas and advocacy in various legal spaces, highlighting the relativity of the Nation-State as a point of departure for legal history and the richness of the various legal traditions connected to our institutions and jurisdictions. 

Conformably to the European University EUTOPIA's strategic orientation, we highlight student-driven connected learning communities, with the involvement of external experts, wherein multilingualism is an important aspect: the primary legal sources from the past (legislation, doctrine, case law, potentially also other archival sources) presented by our students are embedded in their own legal tradition and culture, involving national and regional languages.
