The Procedures research group brings together research on civil, criminal and administrative procedures.

In addition to the analysis of each of their specificities, an interdisciplinary approach is made possible by the emergence of common principles brought together in what is more commonly known as procedural law. The enshrinement of the right to a fair trial runs though all civil (and civil enforcement), criminal, administrative, constitutional and conventional procedures.

This area also makes it possible to compare the respective evolutions of the different procedures concerning, among others, the office of the judge.

The area is not limited to litigation, it also aims at analysing the different ways of avoiding going to court, e.g. alternative methods of dispute settlement, non-litigation administrative procedure.

It is intended to focus on non-judicial procedures, such as those that take place before regulatory authorities.
