Central European Forum on Law and Administration

Central European Forum on Law and Administration
About Us
The idea for the Central European Forum on Law and Administration was born during the International Conference Tendencies in contemporary public administration: bodies, public tasks and legal forms of their performance held on 13 and 14 October 2015 in Częstochowa. The impressive number of participants from Central Europe gave us impetus to develop the idea of annual meetings and discussions on legal issues and problems common to scholars from Central Europe.

Such meetings provide a great opportunity to exchange views, formulate postulates, and compare legal solutions to the problems present in Central European countries. The meetings are also a certain kind of platform for establishing contacts and cooperation with scholars from other countries, which might result in joint research projects in the future.

Our aim is to organize annual conferences in Częstochowa and Opole in turns. The 2017 Forum conference will take place in Opole.

We cordially invite everyone to participate in our enterprise.

We are hoping to establish a place for exchanging opinions and making new contacts, which would be a basis for fruitful cooperation between scholars from our part of the continent.


Dear Colleagues

We are delighted to inform about an international scientific conference Unification-Integration-Convergence. Mutual interaction between contemporary systems and branches of law held on 18 and 19 October 2016 in Częstochowa, Poland, as a part of the 1 st Central European Forum on Law and Administration, organized by academics of the Institute of Administration, Jan Długosz University, Częstochowa, and academics of the Department of the Theory and Philosophy of Law, University of Opole.

The Conference’s main objective will be to present and discuss issues regarding mutual interaction and penetration of legal systems and their particular parts in modern European states.

Having considered the multitude of issues dealt with by administrative law scholars and theory and philosophy of law scholars, the Organizing Committee have chosen three main research areas to be discussed at the Conference.

The Committee suggests the following areas:

  • addressed to theory and philosophy of law scholars, political scientists, and sociologists: e.g. philosophical and social justification for globalisation, European integration, convergence, and unification of legal cultures in Europe; postcolonial theories explaining the influence of some legal systems on others, based on center-periphery relationship.
  • addressed to European and international law scholars, scholars specialized in comparative studies, and practitioners: e.g. mutual penetration and interaction, and transfers of legal institutions from different legal systems; influence of European and international law on domestic legal systems; issues related to legal transplants.
  • addressed to public law (in its wide sense) scholars, private law scholars, practitioners, and representatives of public institutions: attention will be drawn to the interaction between particular branches of law within one legal system, e.g. public law privatisation and private law publicization, transfers of methods, legal tools and institutions between particular branches of law, establishment of institutions blending features characteristic of different branches of law.


  • Applications must be submitted by 10 October 2016 via the aforementioned application form. The fee should be transferred by 10 October 2016
