The Laboratorio Interdisciplinare Diritti e Regole (LIDER-Lab) at the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies (SSAS) has a long tradition of both theoretical and empirical legal research, training and consulting. It covers fields in private law and regulation at national, transnational and international level.
Built upon a strong combination of academic and professional expertise, LIDER-Lab research activities also take advantage of the unique interdisciplinary interactions available at the SSSA, from engineering to life sciences and economics and of its comparative approach. Moreover, the frequent turnover of distinguished visiting professors and researchers provides a continuous exchange of fresh views and new insights to LIDER-Lab’s research commitments.
As for its training and consulting activities, LIDER-Lab aims to promote dialogue between academics, practitioners (both judges and lawyers) and sectorial experts through the organization of meetings, seminars and workshops.
Along the years, LIDER-Lab established its main activities on a selected series of research areas, often combining them by means of a cross-field approach, and with close attention also to policy implications: under this viewpoint, LIDER-Lab activities are of utmost interest both for public actors and industrial players.
