Annual Conference

The Inaugural Conference of Max Planck Law took place 21–23 October 2019 in Harnack House. Bringing together scholars at all levels from across ten Max Planck Institutes that engage in legal research, the conference was testament to the diversity of legal scholarship taking place within the Max Planck Society as well as celebration of our movement towards a more deeply networked and collaborative future, both between the Institutes and with our partners across the world.

This year’s annual conference will take place, circumstances permitting, between 26–28 October 2020. Highlights will include more masterclasses, which were such a great success the previous year. Professor Anne Peters will offer a keynote lecture on ‘Global Animal Law’ followed by a roundtable. There will also be greater focus this year on sparking and consolidating collaborations between Institutes and researchers. Further details will be made available in due course.
