Arthur Dyevre studied at various universities in Germany, France, the UK and the United States.
He received a Ph.D in public law from University of Paris I Panthéon Sorbonne with a dissertation on judicial activism in France, Germany and the United States. He has held a Garcia Pelayo Fellowship at the Centro de Estudios Politicos y Constitucionales (CEPC) in Madrid and a Max Weber Fellowship at the European University Institute.
He has taught courses in comparative constitutional law, European integration, EU law, government, and jurisprudence and legal theory.
Straddling the boundaries of law and the social sciences, his publications cover a wide range of topics, including the EU constitutionalisation process, EU competition law, the role of national parliaments in the EU, statutory interpretation, legal theory and evolutionary psychology. The core of his research agenda, however, is the study of judicial institutions and judicial decision-making, both in the EU and across legal systems of the world.
His most recent research focuses on constitutional reasoning and the use of data-mining techniques to analyse legal texts (Constitutional Reasoning Project, CONREASON); the development of a game-theoretic approach to study the interplay between national courts and the European Court of Justice in the EU multi-level legal system; and a reassessment of the empirical foundations of the rationale for judicial review of legislation.
