The Society and the Young Lawyers Section

Article 1, par. 2 of the Statutes of the Society says:

“The activities of the Society include the promotion of the study of labour and social security law amongst young academics and lawyers, and support for international comparative schools, seminars and other meetings in those fields.”

 

Pursuant to this statutory mandate, our purpose is to encourage the participation of young lawyers in ISLSSL activities. We would like to encourage their attendance at conferences, through reduced attendance fees. We would also like to create a section on our website where they can share their research. We encourage the creation of awards for younger scholars (granted by the organizing committees and the ISLSSL), as well as the formation of teams of young lawyers to assist the General Rapporteurs in preparing their reports. There should also be seminars organized for young lawyers as part of their training and agreements negotiated with prestigious universities that offer more extensive programs on labour law and social security (for example, the ISLSSL should facilitate academic exchanges among its members for candidates nominated by national associations that meet the requirements established in each case). In this regard, we invite our members to provide ideas and proposals for achieving these objectives.

In particular, we would like to pursue the idea of the Report of the Working Group, to encourage the creation of a Section of young academics and lawyers in our Society. The creation of such a Section is extremely important though not simple. To make  this  possible,  we  thought  it  appropriate  to  encourage  the  establishment  of regional “branches” that would facilitate the initial organization and that would enable their merger into a single international section. The first branch are being established in Latin America and Europe.

The Latin American branch

We have asked a number of young Latin American researchers to take the initiative of setting up a branch of young scholars/lawyers using their own list of contacts. In each of our Latin American countries young researchers have already expressed interest in participating[1]  with a view to organising at the regional level. Those who would like to join the branch are requested to contact Juan Pablo Mugnolo (jmugnolo@yahoo.com.ar), who is coordinating this initiative.

The members of the Latin American branch have expressed interest in holding their first meeting during the Regional Congress of Labour Law and Social Security to be held from 2 to 4 October 2013 in Guayaquil, Ecuador. On that occasion, they aim to produce research papers and discuss the degree of changes to the “employment relationship” over the last decade, characteristic of most economies of the region. This research will try to identify some trends (expansionary, contractionary) in the field of labour and social rights, and if possible, establish a link between these trends and future economic growth.

The European branch

The European dimension of labour law, as it is known, is characterized by strong integration among national legal cultures, supported significantly by the action of the European Union. Moreover, there are parallels in the development of various national laws despite sometimes significant legal differences.

A comparison of the realities of emerging EU countries is increasingly important and dynamic as is the need to meet the new requirements induced by the demands of competitiveness and sustainability due to the economic crisis that has characterized a number of European economies in recent years. These transforming factors suggest the need for continued reflection on the past, present and future of labour law in Europe.

Scholars of all generations are needed for this phase of reorganization of our scientific discipline to develop initiatives that can best consider cross-cutting issues within Europe, such as the theoretical foundations of labour law, the role and powers of trade unions and collective bargaining, the form and degree of legislative protection afforded to workers, the very notion of “worker” as the mode for qualifying for protections provided by labour law, social security and welfare systems.

There are many instruments at our disposal to assist in these reflections: news of new legislation, publications, conferences and seminars, promoting the call for papers and collections of studies, organizations of congresses or congresses sections.

This initial phase, undertaken by a first group of scholars, will see the creation of an online forum open to all young European labour lawyers with the aim of defining the most effective initiatives for starting a program of common research and deeper reflection.

University students who are engaged in research fields of comparative labour law and who are interested in joining this European branch of young ISLSSL lawyers, at this early stage of discussion (which will continue until the end of next March) may contact Prof. Stefano Bellomo (stefanobellomo@mmba.it), who is gathering a list of initial participants (young scholars from Italy, France, Spain, UK, Poland, Russia, have expressed interest and others have been contacted)[2] and is organising the first phase of this collective reflection on the development of new tools for comparison and discussion.

In Conclusion

All this is being conceived by young lawyers in an independent manner and they, for the moment, are responsible for the regional integration of these “branches.” The Regional levels should eventually merge into an international one that will seek to achieve the full realization of this initiative. Its sustainability will depend on the enthusiasm and dedication of the young lawyers of each Section.

We  invite  our  colleagues  from  other  regions  of  the  world  to  establish branches” for subsequent merger into a single entity.

As expected, the “internationalization” of the academic activity of young lawyers will contribute to the enrichment and improve the quality of our Congresses while encouraging membership in the respective national societies.
