[We have the following announcement of a Call for Papers for the conference, “The Contribution of the Legal Services of the European Institutions to European Law."]
‘Legal History of the European Union’ is a recently established research field at the Max Planck Institute for European Legal History at Frankfurt. The MPIeR attempts to situate the history of European law in a longue durée perspective, emphasizing the comparative dimension and taking into account the broader political and socio-economic context.
Among its activities the research group organizes an annual conference. The first conference in 2017 explored the Treaties of Rome, and the focus of the 2018 conference was on the biographies of key personalities contributing to the legal dimension of European integration. A follow-up conference, entitled ‘The Contribution of the Legal Services of the European Institutions to European Union Law’, will be held on 18-19 June 2019. It will scrutinize the history of European law with a distinct focus on the contribution of the legal services of the European Institutions to European Union law from its origins until the present day.
A call for papers will be issued on March 1st 2019. For further information please see the official announcement on our Homepage.
