Place: Meeting Room of FDET

Hour:  17h to 18h


Presentation: "La transmissió de la delació en el dret civil català. Implicacions civils, registrals i fiscals"

Enrique Peruga Pérez, is a full-time predoctoral researcher at the Department of Private Law at the University of Barcelona. He is currently working on his doctoral thesis under the direction of Dr. Esther Arroyo Amayuelas. Prior to beginning his Doctorate studies, he worked as a lawyer in the Civil and Commercial Procedural Law department of a large firm based in Catalonia. His research activity focuses on Catalan Civil Law and, more specifically, inheritance Law, particularly from a comparative perspective. He recently completed a predoctoral research stay at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (Munich, Germany).

Abstract: The work analyzes the recent jurisprudence of the Catalan courts and the rest of Spain on the transmission of ius delationis,
that is to say, the right to accept or repudiate the acquisition of an inheritance. The study of jurisprudence and recent doctrine reveals
certain dysfunctions in the current state of Catalan regulation. Among others, an issue of the current regulations is that it gives preference to the transmission of the denunciation over the vulgar substitution. The negative effects of this and other dysfunctions not only affect Civil Law or Inheritance Law, but also Tax Law and Registry Law.  Consequently, some solutions are proposed in the light of Catalan legal tradition and Austrian succession law. In particular, it is necessary to reflect on whether it would not be more appropriate that, in cases of post-death of the
person called, vulgar substitution generally prevailed over the right of transmission.

Hour: 17h to 18h


Presentation: "Mechanisms to reduce the secondary victimization of persons under the age of victims of sexual violence: practical application of the pre-constituted test in the context of the Barnahus"

Roser Casanova Martí, tenure-eligible Lecturer of Procedural Law at Rovira i Virgili University. She holds a PhD in Law from the same university with an international mention (2014) and an extraordinary doctorate award (2015). She has participated in different national and international research projects. Her research activity focuses mainly on probatory matters, in the criminal and civil field, being the author of numerous publications, highlighting her monograph “The telephone interventions in the criminal process” (edit. JM Bosch, 2014). She has participated in several national and international conferences and scientific conferences as a speaker, communicating and member of the organization committees. She has also carried out different research stays in national and foreign centres: three at Oxford University, England (2012, 2015 and 2019), one at the Università degli studi di Bologna, Italy (2013) and one at Pompeu Fabra University (2022).

AbstractIt is unquestionable that sexual violence in its entirety is unacceptable, and even more so when it is directed against minors. Unfortunately, the statistics show that a very important part of this type of violence is against this vulnerable group, of which only a few cases become known. To ensure that these facts are explained and denounced, criminal justice must be able to respond to the needs of these victims. In this context, the Barnahus project has been implemented in the province of Tarragona, a pioneer in Catalonia and Spain, in charge of the management and care of children and adolescents victims of sexual abuse in a coordinated way among all the professionals involved in these cases. The main purpose of the research work presented is to examine the reform introduced by Organic Law 8/2021, of June 4, on the comprehensive protection of children and adolescence against violence, which modifies the Law of Criminal Procedure and introduces ex novo the obligation to preconvent the test of the declaration of minors in the criminal process and its practical application in the context of Barnahus.

Oriol Cremades - 2022 URV - petita

Day: January 22, 2024

Place: Meeting room of FDET

Hour: from 17h to 18h


Presentation: "Virtues and shortcomings of the Spanish legal-labor regulatory model of the group of companies"

Oriol Cremades Chueca, tenure-eligible Lecturer Serra Húnter of Labour and Social Security Law at the Rovira i Virgili University. He holds a PhD with international mention in Economic and Business Law from the University of Deusto, the Universidad Pontificia Comillas (ICADE) and the Universidad Ramon Llull (ESADE-URL). His doctoral thesis on the identification and legal foundations of labour liability in the group of companies in Spain won the "Spanish Association of Labour and Social Security Law" Award for the best doctoral thesis defended in 2020 and obtained the Extraordinary Doctorate Award from the URL. Prior to beginning his academic career, he worked for renowned law firms and completed a pre-doctoral research stay at the Portuguese Catholic University and a post-doctoral research stay at the University of Rome La Sapienza. His research interests include the impact of corporate fragmentation (group of companies and network of companies) on labour law, the concept of the employer and its powers, and "Digital Labour Law" (in particular, the use of personal mobile devices for work -Bring Your Own Device - BYOD-, the law of digital disconnection, telework, and artificial intelligence and Collective Labour Law).

Abstract: The group of companies, as a form of corporate structuring, is a historical success; however, its risks and the difficulties for the law to regulate it are undeniable. In this sense, despite the fact that all legal systems and areas of law find it complex to regulate, not all regulatory models for company groups are equally effective and efficient. Based on these ideas, the paper will address what is understood to be the current Spanish legal-labour regulatory model for company groups, emphasizing and contrasting its possible virtues and shortcomings. In particular, on the one hand, the advantages and risks of the group of companies will be analysed, and on the other, the legal-legislative treatment of the group of companies as well as the Spanish jurisprudential doctrine of the "labour group of companies" will be discussed.


2nd Semester

Gonzalo Fernández Codina

Day: March 18, 2024

Place: Meeting room of FDET

Hour: 17h to 18h


Presentation: “Human dignity as a fundamental right: Is a comprehensive and practical comprehension of the concept feasible, or is it a relic that must be discarded and forgotten forever? A proposal that is founded on the concepts of self-esteem and shame”

Gonzalo Fernández Codina is a doctor in philosophy, an attorney, and an associate professor at the University of Barcelona. He has authored monographs in the fields of bioethics and criminal law. His thesis studies the legitimacy and legality of secession in democratic contexts.

Abstract: Both in philosophy and in law, it is very common to speak of human dignity as the foundation of all rights and/or of the legal order itself. This being the case, it would be expected to have a reasonably clear concept that would allow us to decide precisely what is acceptable and what is not. Yet, quite the opposite happens: dignity is commonly appealed to in favour of one position and its opposite, without really knowing what exactly is being said or why. In the seminar, we will review the main proposals in circulation about human dignity and its many difficulties. However, we will try to show the serious problems we incur if - as is also usual - we decide to get rid of them completely. To conclude, we complete this critical section by outlining a new proposal on dignity understood as the right not to be subjected to situations that rationally justify feeling debased - a notion that, naturally, will also have to be clarified.

Day: April 15, 2024

Place: Meeting room of the FDET

Hour: 17.00h-18.00h

Presentation: “Analysis of the change in the migration paradigm in Mexico: a challenge for its management by public administrations”


Pablo Latorre Rodríguez, PhD in Law from the University of Zaragoza, carries out his teaching and research duties at the Autonomous University of Baja California (Mexico). Among his publications, the following monograph stands out: The legal management of diversity from Public Administrations, Tirant lo Blanch, 2018.


Abstract: Mexico has always played a leading role in migration dynamics on a global scale, since it is the main issuing state for migrants to the United States. However, recently, a reconfiguration of this traditional scenario has taken place, since, in addition to the aforementioned historical role, the role of involuntary transit point for the growing flows of migrants from other origins (notably Central Americans) must also be added. Even as a result, current migratory trends, such as those known as the migrant caravan, represent an enormous challenge for Mexico, which must ensure respect for the human rights of migrants and manage the phenomenon of cultural diversity with the aim of avoiding potential social conflicts.
