An overview of the Academy of European Public Law
Founded in 1995, the Academy is the oldest and most esteemed educational establishment of the “European Public Law Organization” (EPLO), and the most representative of its mandate. The EPLO has been entwined with the development of European Public Law, and the emergence of the EU as a new legal order in international law. The European Group of Public Law, is the scientific council of the EPLO and also the ones who initiated the idea of an Academy in European Public Law.
The Academy offers study sessions leading to the Intensive International Master of Laws (I.I.LL.M.) in European Public Law or the Certificate of Attendance in European Public Law for those interested in furthering their knowledge and skills on the reasoning and philosophy of the different national public law systems of European countries, as well as the divergences among them.
The study sessions are conducted during the months of August and September on an annual basis at the premises of the EPLO in Athens, Sounion and at the Anargyrios- Korgialenios School in Spetses Island, Greece, and have a 3-week duration.
Conceived by the European Group of Public Law
The European Group of Public Law
The European Group of Public Law (EGPL)
Α European association of judges, jurists, law academics and practitioners, was formed in 1989 with the purpose of advancing and directing the development of European Public Law.
This group EGPL proposed the initiatives that led to the establishment of the European Public Law Organization (EPLO), such as the European Review of Public Law, currently constituting the main EPLO publication and the European Academy of Public Law. Nowadays, the EGPL serves as the EPLO’s scientific advisory body offering recommendations, as well as essential feedback on its activities.
Since its formation, the EGPL has held annual conferences operating under the title “EGPL Annual Reunion” where its members present and discuss their reports on a collectively chosen topic. These reports are published in the European Review of Public Law.
Over more than twenty years of pioneering work dedicated to the development of European Public Law, the EGPL has gradually expanded its membership. Today the EGPL includes 243 judges, jurists, law academics and practitioners, leading figures in their field, working for national and supranational institutions such as the Council of Europe, the European Commission, the Conseil d’ Etat de France, Constitutional and High Courts, comprising one of the most innovative and successful legal associations in Europe.
The program foresees a stop at Spetses island for the Annual Reunion of the EGPL – a once in a lifetime experience!
The program of the Academy foresees the participation of students at the Annual Reunion of the European Group of Public Law (EGPL), which takes place on the island of Spetses during the end of their third week of stay.
This is a unique opportunity for the students to come into contact with the latest developments in the field of public law, as well as to meet with some of the most distinguished Academics and Professionals at the international level. Students will spend 3 days with the members of the EGPL, thus having the opportunity to network and establish the basis for future collaborations.
Furthermore, students who are interested in pursuing the I.I.LL.M, will be able to discuss topics for their future dissertation, and identify a potential supervisor.
Participation at the EGPL Reunion is mandatory for the completion of the Academy session.
