Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Prof. Dr. Philipp Dann

Law and Development Research Network (LDRN)

The LDRN seeks to enhance knowledge and understanding of the role of law, both domestic and international, in relation to development and governance, as perceived globally and locally, and is therefore concerned with the social functioning of legal systems primarily in the context of countries in the Global South. It envisages that the LDRN community will engage in fruitful discussions from both orthodox and critical perspectives on the role of law in development.

The LDRN was launched at the Law and Development Conference at the University of Antwerp in September 2017 by the partner institutions.

The Chair of Public Law and Comparative Law, Prof. Philipp Dann, is a founding partner of LDRN and organises this year's 4th annual conference, which takes place from 25-27 September 2019 at Humboldt University of Berlin. The deadline for the submission of abstracts was 15 February 2019. Confirmed keynote speakers include: Justice Madan Lokur (Former Judge at the Supreme Court of India), Prof. Katharina Pistor (Columbia Law School), Prof. David Trubek (University of Wisconsin Law School).
