The Institute for Research in the Fundaments of Law (lucernaiuris) at the University of Lucerne is dedicated to advancing pioneering academic work in the foundational legal subjects (legal history, legal philosophy, legal theory and legal sociology). In particular, it seeks to promote the establishment of inter- and transdisciplinary approaches to the study of law, which enrich legal discourse by opening new and innovative avenues of inquiry.
The Visiting Researcher Programme is designed to support promising young scholars working in the above-mentioned fields. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to conduct their research under the guidance of Law School faculty and in a stimulating climate of intellectual exchange and cooperation. They will also be invited to participate in the institute’s own teaching and research programmes, and enjoy full access to our extensive specialist resources.
