The European Journal of Legal Studies (EJLS) and the Academy of European Law are delighted to invite submissions for the EJLS 10th anniversary conference to be held on November 16, 2017 at the European University Institute (EUI) in Florence, Italy.


The theme of the 10th anniversary conference is “60 Years of European Integration: Reflections from Young Legal Scholars”. On this occasion the EJLS invites young scholars to submit papers that reflect on the sixty years of legal integration, discuss new ways to think about the European project or present innovative responses to current challenges of the EU. Proposals should reflect on one of the four panels of the conference: Modes of integration and their role in promoting and undermining the European integration process, National (constitutional) courts and the EU legal order-more trouble ahead?, The EU and the international legal order-an integration paradox?, How to think EU law?


Participation is open to young researchers currently enrolled in an LLM, PhD, or post-doc program, as well as young assistant professors having defended their doctoral thesis within the last five years.


Applicants must submit an extended abstract (500-700 words) and a CV and indicate their preference for one of the four panels. Final version of the papers, after the conference, will be considered for publication in a special EJLS 10th anniversary issue. The author of the best paper will receive a book prize worth of 300 GBP sponsored by Hart Publishing.


Submissions should be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by July 15, 2017. Final papers are due to November 1, 2017 and will be circulated among the participants in advance of the conference.
