European Law


The British Institute of International and Comparative Law has an extensive programme of activities in European law including research and events.

Over the years, the Institute has conducted research on a wide variety of European law topics, many of which have been produced for consideration by the European institutions in their policy making. European law research is mainly based on specific subject matter, such as civil protection or European citizenship, but may also be guided by a specific geographical scope such as new Member States, for example.

The Institute organises conferences, seminars and other events on topics of interest in European law. The aim of our European law events programme is to provide a forum for a wide range of individuals, including practitioners, academics and government officials, to analyse and debate current issues in European law, and to promote immediate discussion of recent developments in European law. Information on upcoming and past events can be accessed on BIICL's events pages.


Maurice Wohl Fellow in European Law: Justine Stefanelli

The Maurice Wohl Fellowship in European Law is generously sponsored by The Vivmar Foundation, which is an overseas grant-making charitable trust funded through the generosity of the late Maurice Wohl and his wife, Vivienne Wohl (formerly of London and Geneva).

The European Law programme benefits from the specialised guidance of a small Advisory Panel comprising:

Professor Catherine Barnard, University of Cambridge; Professor Piet Eeckhout, King's College London; Michael Hutchings OBE; Sir Francis Jacobs KCMG QC King's College London; and Professor Stephen Weatherill Jacques Delors Professor of European Community Law, University of Oxford.

European law is a theme that also runs through many of the Institute's other research areas. For events and research in those areas, please visit:
