The academic staff of the Jean Monnet Module in European Union Law and Sustainable Development is honoured to announce the fifth keynote lecture of the 2018/2019 series. On May 7th, we will host Prof Arie Reich, Professor of Law at Bar-Ilan University and Jean Monnet Chair of EU Law and Institutions, for a keynote lecture on “The External Impact of the EU Court of Justice“. Beyond the utmost interest of the lecture’s topic, the event also seeks to advance EULawSD’s commitment to developing synergies within the Jean Monnet community. In particular, the external impact of the CJEU jurisprudence relating to sustainable development issues represents a core area that will be explored in the discussion that will follow Prof Reich’s lecture.
The lecture takes place in the framework of Prof. Reich’s visit to the University of Siena’s Department of Law funded by the Erasmus+ ICM Siena-Israel Project, coordinated by Prof. Mario Perini. The lecture is co-organized with the Jean Monnet Module on the Europeanization of Constitutional Law (EUCOLAW), coordinated by Prof. Tania Groppi”.
