The workshop will focus on current issues in the intersection of law and society, with a special emphasis on law, social work and social policy, discussing research papers or seminal works in this field. In addition, some meetings will be devoted to public and practice-related issues related to law and society in the public sector, the business sector, civil society and the legal system.
Nine meetings will be held during the semester. In general, in each meeting an article will be presented by the author or by leading scholars in the field, followed by two or three responses by the workshop participants. Subsequently, the article will be discussed by all workshop participants. Participants are required to submit a short written response to the article (up to two pages) with respect to at least six of these articles.
