The Centre works to accommodate all high-level scientific research in an academic framework. Its principal objective is to promote collective and individual research in the domain of legal philosophy in a broad sense. This incorporates, notably, the theory of rights and legal methodology, legal logic and legal rhetoric, natural rights, legal and political philosophy, and, more generally, all aspects of practical reasoning connected to law.
The Centre organises, alone or in cooperation with others, numerous local and international scientific events. It is situated at the crossroads of Belgian interuniversity research, and boasts several links that have developed over the span of years with the Universities of Liege (ULG) and Namur (FUNDP) and the University Faculties of Saint-Louis (FUSL).
