Fifth Congress of the German-speaking Sociology of Law Association, 21-23 September 2023, Leopold-Franzens-University Innsbruck
Call for Papers:
As “access to law” is a classic topic in the sociology of law and within the empirical legal studies it will build the focus of the inter- and multidisciplinary congress taking place in Innsbruck in September 2023.
Theoretical, empirical and methodological reflections around “access to law” and “accessible rights” are highly welcome.
Current crises (economy, climate, health, migration etc) as well as technological developments (keyword: digitalisation) also challenge the access to justice and the accessibility of law.
As empirical studies repeatedly show, the accessibility of law varies greatly for people of different origins, social class, gender, (dis)ability, etc.
