Centre for business law and society

The CRIDES, a Centre for Interdisciplinary research on business law issues, aims to analyse, on the one hand, the role of law in business and its environment and, on the other hand, the function of business in society .

This study relies on the belief that legal rules must be understood in context, according to the "law and society" approach.

The centre brings together four research groups dealing with i) economic and company law, ii) intellectual property and digital law, iii) social and labor law (Atelier SociAL) and iv) tax law.
