Centre for European Legal Studies 

University of Exeter

The University of Exeter School of Law’s Centre for European Legal Studies (CELS) is one of the oldest of its kind in the UK (established in 1972). It provides a focus for the teaching and research of both European Union and comparative law in the Law School.

CELS has close ties with Exeter's Centre for European Governance, based in the School of Historical, Political and Sociological Studies. Associated members of staff publish regularly in leading academic journals in the field. CELS organises regular events about recent developments in European law such as conferences, workshops and case law briefings. Under the centre’s auspices the annual Dominik Lasok Lecture is held to which eminent guest speakers are invited. The Exeter Papers in European Law series which is published regularly includes the text of the noted annual Lasok lectures.
