European Union Law

"Studying EU law at King's College was a most rewarding and truly outstanding experience. The whole faculty is dedicated, welcoming and very keen to assist international students. The course is built up in such a way that people with less experience in EU law can build up the necessary skills to cope with the high intellectual and academic standards of King's."

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.

About

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.

Objectives

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.
