EU Law at Liverpool is one of the UK’s oldest and largest centres for research into the law of the European Union.
We have a long and proud tradition of publishing leading academic research, organising significant national and international scholarly collaborations, and producing world-class impact for the benefit of policy-makers, civil society organisations, and the wider public.
Our expertise spans many fields of European Law – including EU institutional and constitutional law, legal relations between the EU and its Member States, the Internal Market (including competition law), the Area of Freedom Security and Justice, and the EU’s relationship with the UK.
In response to the public demand for clearer and improved information about the EU, a number of our members added expertise to public debate following the UK's withdrawal from the European Union. Having worked closely on the UK's members of the EU for many years, our members are able to provide independent, evidence-based information, and analysis in a way that is accessible to interested members of the public as well as more specialist audiences.
If you would like any of our members to visit your local community group or business for a similar question-and-answer session, please feel free to get in touch with EU Law at Liverpool Co-Directors, Professor Michael Dougan and Professor Valsamis Mitsilegas.
