The Faculty of Law, University of Zagreb, has the honor to organize the Transport Law de
lege ferenda: 2nd Annual Young Academics' Vision on Tomorrow's Transport Law
This annual event has been inaugurated in 2013 in Leuven, Belgium, organized and hosted by
the Catholic University Leuven. The speakers, young academics starting with, working on, or
having finished their doctoral studies, had the opportunity to share the current or final results
of their research, and participate in live debates on important transport law issues. The key
goal of the TRANSLAWFER 2014 Conference is to continue the initiative, with hopes that
the Conference becomes an annual event, hosted by Universities all over the World.
The presentations will be divided into a number of panels, each moderated by professors,
practitioners and representatives from the transport and insurance industries. The moderators
will introduce the subject-matter and moderate the discussion following each presentation.
This method successfully connects the Academia with Practice, giving a better understanding
of different perspectives concerning a particular topic of interest, and deepening the discourse
between the two.
All topics within the Transport Law field are eligible for submission (Maritime, Air,
Road, Rail, Internal Waterways, Multimodal, Logistics etc.)
The participation at the Conference is free of charge
The official language of the Conference is English
Participants wishing to present their research are to submit the title and short abstract
of their presentation in English (2000 to 3000 words) before the 1st September 2014
