The Jean Monnet Chair in European Civil Procedure at IE University is the first Chair entirely devoted to the study of the ELI-UNIDROIT Model Rules of European Civil Procedure.

One of the activities of the Chair is the IE European Civil Procedure Series, a series of roundtables where students, academics, practitioners, judges, policymakers, from Europe and beyond, can explore the Rules together with the leaders in the field.

We aim at having around one session every month. Around one hour long. Online for the time being. We’ll make sure that everyone can interact with the speakers.

In the first session, on 1 December 2020, we’ll welcome Professors Xandra Kramer from Erasmus Law School in Rotterdam as well as from Utrecht, Emmanuel Jeuland from the Sorbonne, and Fernando Gascón from the Complutense. Together we’ll analyze the very structure of the Rules as well as the challenges they had to face when drafting the Rules from this structural perspective.

We hope you’ll find this initiative interesting, and we hope to see many of you in this and future sessions.

You can register to this session here.
