Centre for European Legal Studies, Cambridge
The Centre for European Legal Studies is a research centre of the Faculty of Law.
Across its twenty-five years of activities, the Centre has provided a platform for research, discussion and dissemination of scholarly work within the broad field of European Legal Studies. These encompass: public and private law analyses of European legal developments, including the impact of European law in national law; comparative European law; the law of the European Union; the instruments of the Council of Europe; and other regional and global legal regimes that interact with European legal sources. The breadth of its field of enquiry is matched by the depth of analysis provided by its members, affiliates, associates, research students and visitors.
The mission of the Centre remains unchanged even after the ‘Brexit’ referendum decision. The demand for expertise and knowledge about the many facets of European law is, if anything, heightened following the referendum.
The Centre members are active in lending their knowledge and understanding of the consequences of the referendum decision not just to policymakers but also to the media and the public, as well as to the broader academic community.
The changing preoccupations of the field of European Legal Studies continues to be reflected in the Centre’s flagship journal: the Cambridge Yearbook of European Legal Studies published by Cambridge University Press. Published continually online and annually in print it is an important contribution to European legal scholarship.
