Founded in 2007, the Private Justice and the Rule of Law (PJRL) research group is headed by Professor Fabien Gélinas.
The goal of the Private Justice and the Rule of Law research program is to foster our understanding of the interplays between private and public justice. By inquiring on the control over arbitration and anational law, our program focuses on the manifestations of state justice both in substantive and procedural terms, that is on the funding pillars of the rule of law.
Its four research axes cover Transnational law, state law and international law; Arbitrability, public policy and rule of law; Jurisdiction, the power of the arbitrators and consent; and Private justice, rights, and technology.
The PJRL research group is funded by the Fonds québécois de recherche sur la société et la culture (FQRSC).
