The Research Field ‘Legal History of the European Union’ attempts to situate the history of European law in a longue durée perspective, emphasizing the comparative dimension and taking into account the broader political and socio-economic context.

The 2019 conference will examine the history of European law with a distinct focus on the contribution of the Legal Services of the European Institutions to European Union law from its origins until the present day.
