CEPRISCA focuses its research on legal issues that mobilise stakeholders in the Picardy region.
The work of the laboratory’s lecturer-researchers is structured along four lines of research:
• "Digital law" axis [Head of research: Delphine Cocteau-Senn]
Exploring the virtual world with regard to the traditional rules and principles of law, private or public, and defining new principles, more specific and therefore more adapted to the digital world.

• "Business and law" theme [Head of the theme: Bertille Ghandour]
Study of the central role of the company and thefunctions of the rules relating to the advent of the company, its creation, its powers, its responsibilities, etc.

• "Health law" theme [Leader of the theme: Georges Fauré]
Study of the common points of the general legal consequences of the state of vulnerability found both in newborn babies and in elderly people at the end of life.

• "History and technique(s) of the norm" axis [Leaders of the axis: Sophie Sédillot et Émeric Nicolas]
Understanding the law in its historical, technical and theoretical dimension through the norm, according to two unifying themes: "Transition" and "Theory(ies) of the norm".
