Abstract

In Germany, Great Britain and France employment rights disputes are adjudicated in labour courts in which lay judges play a decisive role. This paper outlines the key findings of a recent study into lay labour court judges in these three countries. It then explores how these might be understood as industrial relations actors and whether field theory might help in understanding the relationships between the industrial relations and legal fields in the selected countries.
