CELS runs a series of lunchtime seminars during the Michaelmas Term. These seminars provide a platform for the presentation of new ideas by leading scholars from inside and outside the university. The lunchtime seminars address topical issues of European Union Law and Comparative Law, with a view to using collective debate as a forum for developing and disseminating ideas, and producing high quality research publications which contribute to an understanding of major issues in the European Union. There is a close link between the CELS Lunchtime Seminar series and the Cambridge Yearbook of European Legal Studies (CYELS). Papers generated from most of these seminars are published as articles in the CYELS.

These seminars are open to members of the University and to the general public. There is no need to register to attend these seminars. The lunchtime seminars take place from 1:05pm to 1:55pm on Wednesdays in Lecture Room B16 (unless otherwise stated). A sandwich lunch is provided at 12:45pm. There is no charge for lunch or to attend the seminar.

Subject to speaker consent, the lecture component for each seminar will be made available on the University of Cambridge Streaming Media Service (SMS) and the Apple iTunes platforms. The introductions and Q&A sections will not be included to encourage frank and open discussion. You can subscribe to the 'CELS Lunchtime Seminar Series' on iTunes for automatic download to your iTunes library, or an RSS feed is available from the SMS for use on other devices.
