The next World Congress of the IAPL (the XVIIth so far!) is programmed to take place in Lima (Peru) from 5 to 8 September 2023. All the information is now available at the Congress official website; you may also register there. As all our congresses, it will be a major event in procedural law. We will be waiting for you! 



It is our pleasure to announce the fourth edition of the Post-Doctoral Summer School, which will take place in Madrid (Complutense University) from the 19 to the 21 of June 2023. Up to 15 places will be available for applicants having procedural law and/or dispute resolution mechanisms as their main field of academic interest. 

This 4th edition of the Summer School has chosen to explore the topic of “Challenges for Procedural Law”. The School is interested in discussing the challenges that procedural law must face in order to fulfil its functions effectively, both for the resolution of disputes and for the enforcement of the law and the prevalence of the rule of law. Somewhat more particularly, the School is interested in fostering academic discussion on four different fronts. On the one hand, challenges of a more political nature, in particular the democratic challenges to which the activity of the courts is being subjected. Secondly, technological challenges, with digitalisation and the use of artificial intelligence in the field of justice. Thirdly, challenges of an economic, social and/or cultural nature can be taken into consideration, including analyses from the perspective of post-colonialism and neo-colonialism, but also contributions that address the relationship between procedural law and vulnerability. Finally, challenges of a generational nature are of interest, expressing how procedural law can contribute to sustaining the engagement of the current generation with future generations (litigation in relation to climate change is a good example, but not necessarily the only one). Although in the abstract, they can also be seen as challenges for procedural law, this edition of the school does not seek to address alternative dispute resolution mechanisms or collective redress, which have already been dealt with in previous editions. All papers submitted to the 2023 Summer School should delve into one or several of these issues.

You will find the complete announcement and all relevant information in the Forthcoming Activities and Events section of this page.

International Journal of Procedural Law

The multilingual International Journal of Procedural Law (IJPL) provides an international research platform for scholars and practitioners in the field of procedural law, especially in civil matters.

In addition to articles in five different languages examining current developments in judicial and alternative dispute resolution, the IJPL also publishes articles devoted to the theoretical foundations of procedural law. Contributions address legal issues from domestic, transnational or international perspectives, including comparative law and conflicts of law aspects. Consequently, the IJPL is not only of interest for scholars but also for practitioners in charge of cross-border cases.

The IJPL is published twice a year. Each issue consists of five parts: Studies, Practice, Debate, Legislation and Information (book reviews, interviews, conference summaries). Articles must be written in English, French, German, Italian or Spanish and will be published in the language in which they have been submitted. Preliminary abstracts in the other languages of the IJPL inform the reader about the central points of each article. The IJPL is the journal of the International Association of Procedural Law.

If you are interested in publishing, you may read here the guidelines for submissions.
