European and Business Law Network
The European and Business Law Network at the School of Law at University College Cork is designed to provide a platform for the sharing of knowledge and research amongst scholars in the School of Law with shared interests in many aspects of the European Union. This research covers all aspects of European Union law from administrative law to business and rights based issues.
The network is intended to be as inclusive as possible. Its primary focus is on the European Union, allowing us to place our research and work in a broader global context.
It allows us to interact with scholars across Europe and with scholars in other parts of the globe as we present ourselves as coming from a common law jurisdiction firmly placed within a broader European regulatory landscape. With the imminence of BREXIT our identification as a common law system within Europe and the Eurozone is all the more compelling.
- To provide a platform for the identification of current research strengths in this intellectual space.
- To contribute to the enhancement of these research strengths as part of the identity of the School of Law at University College Cork and to collaborate with other researchers in UCC generally.
- To provide a network for collaboration amongst existing researchers or between existing researchers and new early stage researchers and to engage proactively with European calls for funded research under H2020 and FP9.
- To maximise our engagement with scholars internationally.
- To maximise our engagement with policy makers both nationally and internationally.
- To interact proactively with module and programme development, in particular to support relevant LLM programmes such as the LLM (Business Law) and the newly launched BLC (Law and Business). BCL (Law and French) is another example.
