Updated programme of 'Europeanisation of national administrative law'

Leiden University and REALaw organise a Conference and Summer Course on Europeanisation of national administrative law. This will be held from 2-4 September 2019 in the Old Observatory in Leiden. All speakers are confirmed and the programme is now published.

Conference and Summer Course

The Conference and Summer Course cover legal principles that are essential in any rule of law. There are many similarities and differences in the meaning, interpretation and applications of these principles across different EU member states. These national principles are increasingly influenced by EU Law (and perhaps vice versa). Are they being made uniform? How and to what extent does that occur? Are EU Law principles smoothly absorbed in national law, or is there resistance? These and other questions will be discussed during the Conference and Summer Course in Leiden.


The conference will be held on 2nd of September. During the conference renowned speakers will share their views on the Europeanisation of national administrative law in their member states. Confirmed speakers are:

  • Prof. Takis Tridimas, Kings College London;
  • Prof. Luis Arroyo Jiménez & Gabriel Domenech, La Mancha and University of Valencia;
  • Lamprini Xenou, Université Paris-Est Créteil;
  • Prof. Henrik Wenander, Lund University;
  • Prof. Sacha Prechal, Utrecht University and judge at the European Court of Justice; and
  • Prof. Herwig Hofman (University of Luxembourg).

Subsequently, the Summer Course will be held on the 3rd and 4th of September. It uses the form of workshops to give the opportunity for an active interexchange of ideas and legal cultures. We are proud to announce the workshop leaders who are all experts in their field:

  • prof. Jacobine van den Brink, University of Amsterdam, on the principle of legitimate expectations;
  • prof. Pieter van Cleynenbreugel, Université de Liège, on the principle of impartiality and independence of EU-mandated national supervisory bodies;
