In the academic year 2017/18, the lecture cycle was dedicated to the topic "Law and Digitalization" and explored a preliminary inventory of topics and research questions.

In the academic year 2016/2017 Recht im Kontext organized seminars on "Organization and Responsibility". The aim was to bring together, interdisciplinary research perspectives on the functions and structures of legal responsibility in different social organizations.

Since the academic year 2015/2016, the Berlin Seminars of Recht im Kontext have been dealing with a coherent theme: under the title "Courts and their Equivalents", we confronted observations in legal research with new perspectives from the humanities and social sciences.

The Berliner Seminar Recht im Kontext provides a forum for testing new inquiries and approaches within a select group of interested scholars. German and international guests present their work at its regularly scheduled, monthly evening sessions. These lectures spawn intensive discussions, which are followed by a reception offering a chance for informal conversation.

Scholars of various disciplines with established interests in context-sensitive legal research are personally invited to take part in the sessions of the Berlin Seminar of Recht im Kontext. We also regularly invite practitioners interested in the scholarly encounter of law and its contexts - including attorneys, journalists and public administrators - to join us.
