Industrial Relations Study Centre

The Industrial Relations Study Centre (CERT), part of the Faculty of Law of the University of Neuchâtel, is open to businesses, public administration and all other organisations interested in issues related to labour law and, more widely, industrial relations.

The Centre’s members undertake academic activities such as the publication of various contributions to the field of labour law and, in some cases, teaching and supervising doctoral theses and Master’s degree dissertations.

Beyond its academic remit, the Centre is committed to organising training seminars and conferences. It also offers other services, such as providing written consultation and legal advice. In addition, the Centre has created a legal collection.
