Adolfo Ibáñez University (UAI) invites the public to the inaugural conference of the recently constituted Center for the Study of Law and Society (CIDS). At the conference, the CIDS will present to the community its main lines of research. In this opening conference, the keynote speakers will explore the question about the relationships of citizens with the law in different areas of the territory. Professors Insa Koch from the London School of Economics will start, followed by Lisa Hilbink from the University of Minnesota. Both will present the results of their research on the relationships of people in marginal or middle sectors of society with formal institutions in the United Kingdom and Chile, respectively.
