CCP SEMINAR THIS WEEK: Friday 25 September
Dr Angela Huyne Zhang (Dickson Poon School of Law, KCL): “The Faceless Court” .
ABSTRACT: This article is the first to study EU competition law by examining the behavior of judges and their law clerks (officially entitled référendaires) at the Court of Justice of the European Union, against the unique institutional settings in Europe. The study is both quantitative and qualitative. It provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date analysis of the background of judges and advocates general appointed to the Court since 1952. It is also the first to provide a statistical analysis on the background of référendaires. As the background of référendaires is not publicly disclosed, the author hand-collected data from LinkedIn and created a dataset of 103 former référendaires and 74 current référendaires working for the Court. The study also benefits from a field trip the author conducted in May 2014 and extensive interviews with former and current members and staff at the Court.
The seminar will be held from 1.00 pm to 2.00 pm, in the Julian Study Centre (JSC), room 2.02.
Tea will be provided directly after the seminar in the JSC Foyer.
