UACES Group Member

European Institute & UCL Laws

University College London

The European Institute is UCL's hub for research, engagement and teaching on Europe, across the full range of disciplines represented at UCL. As a UACES group member, the UCL European Institute acts as a gateway for the Faculty of Laws at UCL and its affiliates.

The UCL European Institute

The European Institute’s core purpose is to enhance UCL’s position as a leading centre for the study of Europe. It exists to promote academic excellence in the study of Europe and to provide a forum for debate and exchange on European issues. It acts as a liaison between UCL and the public as well as the EU and UK policy-making communities.

Founded in 2010, we have been a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence since 2016. We offer a diverse programme of public events, blogs, podcasts and video shorts; provide expert analysis and commentary for media outlets and policymakers; and help coordinate and develop networks of research. We also provide practice-led teaching in the European Studies Space for the UCL Department of Political Science, the Faculty of Laws, and UCL’s School of European Languages, Culture and Society. 

The UCL Faculty of Laws

UCL Laws is an agenda-setting community of legal scholars. Informed by a rich heritage of philosophical enquiry, we produce research that matters and lend a clear voice to global conversations.

Located in the heart of London, a global legal capital, we attract a diverse, international body of students and staff. Our research has real-world impact, shaping legal and judicial policy in the UK and across the globe, and through our regular programme of public events, CPD courses and academic conferences, we add a distinct perspective to public debates, and a rigorous approach to legal practice.
