La présentation du CRJ

Réunissant plus d’une trentaine d’enseignants-chercheurs et une quarantaine de doctorants et post-doctorants, le Centre de Recherche Juridique est le seul laboratoire de recherche en droit de La Réunion. Il poursuit quatre axes de recherches prioritaires et ses domaines d’expertise couvrent la totalité des spécialités juridiques.


Outre de nombreux colloques, journées d’études et de formation, publications collectives (en partenariat notamment avec l’Association LexOI pour la Revue Juridique de l’océan Indien), le Centre de Recherche Juridique est aussi tourné vers la pratique des milieux économiques (entreprises, banques, assurances, collectivités…) et ses activités témoignent de l’étroite association de la Faculté avec les praticiens du droit (avocats, notaires, huissiers…).

The Legal Research Center CRJ

The Legal Research Center CRJ is a research group of the University of Reunion Island for researchers and junior researchers in Law and Political Science. This very dynamic group benefits from the scientific activity (both individual and collective) of senior researchers (41 researchers, part of the teaching staff) and doctoral students (34).

Our center focuses on four main areas of study -namely business and business contract law, inheritance, property law and individual rights, Indian Ocean and overseas departments law, law and transnational phenomena- which fit closely with our Master’s degrees’ fields of studies.

The regional and international collaborations nurtured by the CRJ contribute to its primary purpose which is to become the main cooperation partner of Indian Ocean states and the main interdisciplinary and legal research outpost of France and the European Union in the Indian Ocean. To this aim, the Center is a full participant in the interdisciplinary OSOI research project (OSOI - Observatoire de l’Océan Indien : Observatory of the Indian Ocean) of Reunion Island University.

Based in Reunion Island, the Legal Research Center (CRJ) fully participates in helping to respond to local issues, to Reunion island’s development, and to increase the overall education level of its young population. The CRJ’s close links with professionals greatly improve our committed and well supported young research students’ subsequent job opportunities.
