The Centre for European Legal Studies, Cambridge
The Centre for European Legal Studies was established in 1992 as a research centre for the Faculty of Law. Since its inception, its aim has been to provide a platform for research, discussion and dissemination of scholarly work within the broad field of European Legal Studies (ELS). ELS encompasses: public and private law analyses of European legal developments, including the impact of European law in national law; comparative European law; the law of the European Union; the instruments of the Council of Europe; and other regional and global legal regimes that interact with European legal sources. Through its members, affiliates, associates, research students and visitors, the work of the centre is developed through regular seminars and lectures, as well as more subject-specific and topical workshops and conferences. CELS and its members produce a number of important publications including the Cambridge Yearbook of European Legal Studies published by Cambridge University Press.
