Legal Research Laboratory (LARJ)

Research unit - UR 3603


LARJ is the ULCO’s only legal research laboratory. It is structured around two lines of research. A first axis, privatist, is concerned with the reactions of business law to economic developments. In order to respond to the concerns of the local economic fabric, particularly of businesses in the tourism sector, the main task is to study how the law responds to the problems posed by the new economies, social and solidarity economy, collaborative economy, evolution of labour law to take into account the changing needs of businesses and the aspirations of employees, as well as those generated by the development of digital technology. The second axis, which is essentially publicist, articulates its scientific project around two structuring strands: local public action and environmental public action. In addition, there is cross-cutting research in tourism law.
