Organised on 27-28 October, the workshop was hosted by the School of Law of the University of Bologna with the leadership of Professors Michele Caianiello, Marco Martino and Federico Casolari. The workshop provided an opportunity for the doctoral candidates to present their work on cutting-edge research questions in contemporary private law, and connect with their peers from across Europe.
The participants also had a chance to discuss their research outcomes and receive feedback from academic experts drawn from The Guild’s network of leading European Law Faculties. Marco Martino, together with Professor Grega Strban from the University of Ljubljana, Professor Michael Anderson Schillig from the King’s College London, Professor Michał Kowalski from the Jagiellonian University, and Professor Alessandra Spangaro from the University of Bologna, engaged the doctoral candidates to discuss the role of taxonomies in contemporary private law. They were also fortunate to benefit from the input and feedback of Professor Francesco Mezzanotte from Roma Tre University.
The workshop provided participants not just with valuable feedback and academic perspectives. It also fostered the creation of international networks at an early career stage. The event represented a concrete outcome of The Guild’s Deans of Law group, which has set the strengthening of collaboration among doctoral candidates as a key objective. “I had a really good time and very interesting discussions with the participants! Thank you for the good organisation,” participant of the workshop concluded.
