The European appeal court, formerly known as the ECJ, is set to extend its competence after December 2014 as a result of the Lisbon Treaty.  Eleanor Sharpston will address the question of what the Court does, what it will be doing in the future and whether we could do without it.  She will also consider whether the Court’s role is good or bad for the UK and whether the Court will be able to cope with a massive increase in cases. Eleanor Sharpston has been the UK Advocate General at the Court of Justice of the European Communities since 10 January 2006. She studied economics, languages and law at Cambridge and taught at Oxford before being called to the Bar in 1980. She took silk in 1990 and became a Bencher of Middle Temple in 2005.

18:00 Comparative Law Seminar and Book Launch
Professor Mathias Siems, University of Durham. Discussants:   Professor David Nelken, King's College London; Dr Jacco Bomhoff, London School of Economics;  Dr Maria-Federica Moscati, School of Oriental and African Studies.  Chair: Professor Helen Xanthaki, Institute of Advanced Legal Studies. 
Professor Mathias Siems will introduce the key arguments of his new book "Comparative Law" (Cambridge University Press) and discuss the arguments with a distinguished panel of comparative lawyers. "Comparative Law" by Mathias Siems presents a fresh contextualised and cosmopolitan perspective on comparative law for both students and scholars. It critically discusses established approaches to comparative law, but also presents more modern ones, such as socio-legal and numerical comparative law. Its contextualised approach draws on examples from politics, economics and development studies to provide an original contribution to topics of comparative law.
