Public Procurement Regulation in the EU and in its Global Context

"I can highly recommend King's distance learning programme "Public Procurement Regulation in the EU and in its Global Context", since the in depth knowledge the programme managed to transfer is amazing. The discussions with highly-renowned tutors and authors as well as with students from all over the world were extremely useful and enjoyable. Even people working with procurement law on a daily basis could learn plenty of new views and relevant facts. I've profited from the scientific diversity especially as the global context a lot in my regular work."

Centre of European Law

The Centre of European Law was established in 1974. It is the oldest centre of its kind in the United Kingdom and one of the oldest in the world.


Since its establishment, it has sought to provide leadership in scholarly research in European law, offer academic teaching in specialist areas, and serve the wider community, especially, governments, international organisations, and the practising profession.

It is perceived to be one of the finest centres for the study of European law in the world. Its members are influential in shaping EU law and policy and many of its alumni hold prominent positions throughout Europe.


Some forty-five years after its establishment, CEL remains at the cutting edge of academic research and teaching, and at the forefront of legal developments. 

The aims and objectives of the Centre of European Law remain unchanged after the UK withdrawal from the European Union. There is still a need for students, academics and the legal profession to study and learn about EU Law and there is considerable demand for expertise in this area.
