Notes & Changes

We hope to run this event in person and online. However, seating in the IECL Seminar Room is limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Please complete the registration form below to indicate how you would like to attend.


States increasingly use private law as a means to regulate business and society. This approach to regulation already leads to a tension between private law, which is traditionally oriented towards private interests, and the state's public interest objectives. The conflict increases considerably when the state obliges private parties (by means of private or administrative law) to regulate other private parties by way of contracts. Here, the question arises in particular as to when the demarcation between the state and private individuals becomes blurred and what effects this has on judicial protection.

This event is open only to members of Oxford University. To register for it please complete the form below using your SSO credentials. Registration will close at 10am on the morning of the seminar after which a Teams link will be sent to those who have registered to attend online.
