General information

The European and Economic Law department of the University of Groningen is built around the first chair of European law in the Netherlands. This chair has been held by Prof. Laurens Jan Brinkhorst (1967), Prof. Christiaan Timmermans (1977), Prof. Laurence Gormley (1989), and Prof. Ramses Wessel (2020).

The department strives for the highest level of research and education in all aspects of European law. The aim is to provide students of the Faculty of Law with a complete overview of European Union law and that of the European Convention on Human Rights. The emphasis is on the relationship between European law and the national and international legal systems. Within the framework of the research programme  ‘Protecting European Citizens and Market Participants’, staff of the European and Economic Law department have built up a strong reputation for publishing in national and international top journals.
