PIL moot team supervised by ERC team to finals
On 1 January 2020 Betül Kas joined our ERC team as a postdoc researcher on the subproject on privatisation of civil justice. She is the successor of Alexandre Biard, who as of December 2019 continued his career as a senior advisor at BEUC in Brussels, where he will be able to use his extensive research experience for the benefit of enforcing consumer rights in the EU. We are grateful for his invaluable contribution to our project, resulting in an impressive number of publications and conference presentations among others. We all greatly appreciated his many initiatives, his fieldwork, support of the other researchers, work spirit, and good sense of humour. We are happy to keep him in our team as an affiliated researcher and look forward to our futher collaboration.
We welcome Betül to our team as the successor of Alexandre for the postdoc project on privatisation. She has an impressive track record, having worked among others as a PhD researcher in the ERC Advanced project of Hans Micklitz at the European University Institute in Florence and as a postdoc researcher in the Vidi project led by Chantal Mak at the University of Amsterdam. Her German background will further strengthen our research on German law and practice. One of her research focuses will be the interaction between public and private justice. We are very happy to have Betül on our team and look forward to working with her in 2020 and onwards!

Several members of the ERC team (Georgia Antonopoulou, Xandra Kramer and Erlis Themeli) together with other members of the private law department (in particular Alina Ontanu, Marta Kolacz and Priskila Penasthika) supervised the Erasmus moot team competing in the private international law Pax Moot organized by Sciences Po Paris. The elimination round took place at the ICC in Paris on 22 May 2018 and the Erasmus team made it to the finals. Congratulations to our mooties (FLTR) Emma Ustunalp, Benedicte Mourisse, Despoina Mouridi (lead counsel in Paris), and Melvin Hanswijk!
The problem concerned a climate change case adressing a range of complex transnational litigation issues. The final round will take place at the Peace Peace in the Hague on 1 June 2018.
