Business & Law Research Network


The Business & Law Research Network's (BLRN) vision is that company law should be aligned with socio-economic developments requiring a continuous observation of interactions between the law in the books and the law in action. This resulted in a fruitful cooperation between the Department of Company Law and the Department of Business Studies of the Leiden Law School.

Our unique approach allows us to provide state of the art research that focuses on entrepreneurial activity and liability risks, as well as high-end education and training in that field. To that end, BLRN also uses an unique approach by incorporating insights from behavioural sciences and by closely collaborating with behavioural scientists. We are covering start-up initiatives all the way to semi-public enterprises and large multinationals, both under good and bad financial conditions.

We truly are progressive in how we approach law and business, and are in the forefront of entrepreneurship with good liability and insolvency law practices. BLNR implements its vision through three main research areas (good corporate governance; distress & insolvency; and future business structures), a multidisciplinary team, and a clear understanding of its contribution.
