The Centre of European Law
The Centre of European Law was established in 1974. It is the oldest centre of its kind in the United Kingdom and one of the oldest in the world. Since its establishment, it has sought to provide leadership in scholarly research in European law, offer academic teaching in specialist areas, and serve the wider community, especially, governments, international organisations, and the practising profession. It is perceived to be one of the finest centres for the study of European law in the world. Its members are influential in shaping EU law and policy and many of its alumni hold prominent positions throughout Europe. Some forty-five years after its establishment, CEL remains at the cutting edge of academic research and teaching, and at the forefront of legal developments. As the UK is in the process of withdrawing from the European Union, CEL’s role is even more crucial.
