Organisational unit: Research Grouping
Bristol was one of the first Law Schools in the UK to teach EEC Law, offering courses on the subject in the mid-1970’s, shortly after the UK Accession. Today the School of Law has staff who teach and research across a wide range of specialist areas of European law and staff with expertise in areas of Commercial Law and International Law with a European dimension. European Law activity at Bristol goes beyond the EU and encompasses European human rights, private international law, comparative law and the national laws of European states. A number of leading publications in the European Law field are authored or edited by staff of the School. This expertise enables us to offer an LLM programme in European Law and units which can be studied as part of the Commercial Law and International Law LLM programmes as well. We are also able to offer research degree supervision across a broad spectrum of European topics.
