Loyola press release - March 30, 2009

The Loyola University New Orleans College of Law will present its annual 2009 Brendan Brown Lecture on Wednesday, April 8, at 5 p.m., in Room 405. The lecturer this year is Jacques Ziller, professor of European Union Law at the University of Pavia in Italy, who will speak on “The Constitutionalization of the EU.”

Ziller has been at the University of Pavia since the fall of 2008. From 1998-2008, he was professor of comparative public law at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy, and headed the law department of that institution from 1999-2003. From 1992-1998, he was a professor of public law in his native France.

During his earlier career, Ziller lectured in French public law and comparative public law, European community law and international law, as well as public administration at the University of French West Indies and Guyana and the European Institute of Public Administration. Ziller has held various visiting professor positions at the College of Europe in Belgium and at the Universitat Autonoma in Barcelona, Spain.

Ziller is a prolific author. His recent publications include “The European Constitution,” “The Lisbon Treaty—EU Constitutionalism Without a Constitutional Treaty?,” “The European Constitution: Cases and Material in EU and Member State’s Law” and “The European Constitution and National Constitutions: Ratification and Beyond.”

Ziller holds a doctorate in law and a graduate diploma in German language and literature from the University of Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne.

The Brendan Brown Natural Law Institute, established through the generosity of the late Brendan Brown, a former faculty member of the College of Law, sponsors a major annual lecture, colloquia and other scholarly activities in keeping with Brown’s love of natural law and scholarly discourse.
