Professor Michael Dougan

Michael Dougan, Professor of European Law and Jean Monnet Chair in EU Law at the University of Liverpool, is coming to the University’s Parkgate Road Campus on Monday, November 18, and members of the public are welcome to attend. Professor Dougan will talk for 45 minutes and there will then be 30 minutes for Q and A from the audience.

The event is being organised by the University’s Department of Modern Languages and the Department of Social and Political Science.

According to his web page, Professor Dougan’s work has contributed to wider public and political debates about European law. He has provided written evidence to numerous UK Parliamentary enquiries; appeared as an expert witness before various Parliamentary committees in the House of Commons, House of Lords, Scottish Parliament and European Parliament; and provided external advice / training to a range of UK Government departments, the Scottish and Welsh Governments as well as Union institutions such as the European Parliament, European Central Bank and European Commission.

Michael's public engagement activities, including videos of his lectures before and after the 2016 UK referendum, received extensive public and media attention and he continues to be a popular authority on the matter for individuals and groups all around the world - delivering regular lectures and talks to community and citizen groups all across the UK.

Dr Richard Millington, Programme Leader for German in the Department of Modern Languages at the University of Chester, said: “We are delighted to welcome Professor Dougan to the University of Chester. His knowledge of the Brexit process, and the EU in general, is extensive and his commitment to engage the general public on these issues is exemplary. This is a great opportunity for staff, students and members of the public to learn more about the most important - and divisive - issue in British and European politics today.”

Professor Dougan’s talk will take place at 5.30pm to 7pm on Monday November 18, and will be in room CBK107 of the Binks building on the University of Chester’s Parkgate Road Campus. Students, staff and members of the public are all welcome.
