Centre of European Law

The Centre of European Law

EU 454x237


All face-to-face events are now cancelled or postponed until it is safe for all of us to come together again. In the meantime we are exploring ways to continue the discussion and the engagement with the public via online means.

Academic Programmes
Teaching and recruitment for our distance learning programmes will continue as usual.

All research activities can continue, with staff and research students accessing King’s systems remotely where needed.

We would like to wish all our colleagues and friends much resilience in these difficult times.


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.
