Transport Law de lege ferenda

5th Annual Young Academics’ Vision on Tomorrow’s Transport Law — TransLawFer 2017 

11-12th September 2017, Benicàssim, Spain


On 11 and 12 September 2017, the Institute for Transport Law of the Jaume I-University of Castellon (Spain) will host the 5th Annual Young Academics’ Vision on Tomorrow’s Transport Law Conference (TransLawFer 2017).

The TransLawFer cycle of conferences was inaugurated in 2013 in Belgium, organized by the Catholic University of Leuven, and is held on an annual basis in different countries all around the globe [Zagreb (Croatia), 2014; Elbasan (Albania), 2015; Seoul (South Korea), 2016]. As on the previous occasions, the concept is based on short expositions (15-20 minutes) by young legal academics and practitioners on topics related to their recent research and professional activities, followed by debates with the participants to the forum. The emphasis is thus divided equally between the audience and the speaker since debate, exchange of ideas and constructive criticism have to be encouraged in the first place in order to promote the evolution of transport law. And, certainly, this way of proceeding has turned out to be a successful method of connecting academia with practice and to create debate around different proposals related to the same topic of interest.

Given the particular format of the conference, there is no definite list of speakers, but the event is open to the submission of proposals by young academics and practitioners, giving them an opportunity to participate in a discussion forum that allows them to contrast their own conclusions with those of other researchers and experts who find themselves in a similar situation. In order to ensure the active participation of all participants, the conference is scheduled to be divided into two days (11 and 12 September 2017) and two simultaneous sessions.
