The European Private Law Working Group has been established with the aim of providing a forum for researchers, fellows and professors willing to present and discuss their work. In order to meet the above-stated goal, the working group will organise guest lectures and workshops. In addition to this, the working group wishes to facilitate open discussion on European private law and especially recent developments in the field.
For the purposes of the working group, European private law should be understood in a broad sense, including branches of law such as contract and tort law, consumer protection law, unfair commercial practices, intellectual property law and commercial law, with special attention paid to the interrelationship between primary community law and private law, as well as private law and regulated markets. All of the above contribute to a greater understanding of the European private law system.
The group is grateful for the support of Prof. Hans-W. Micklitz. We invite you to contact us if you are interested in private law and/or if you would like to present your research project in the framework of the European Private Law Working Group: [email protected]
