Kate O’Reilly joins MEPLI

As of 1 October 2016 Kate O’Reilly will join MEPLI as a PhD-researcher. Kate will work on the topic of ‘Bridging the gap between law in action and law on paper: investigating the real obstacles to the effective and uniform application of European legal transfers.’

The project will illustrate through theoretical, experimental and empirical research the attitudes and actions of private consumers and legal practioners in Ireland and the Netherlands towards the Consumer Rights Directive, as representative of legal transfers between European Union law and the law of the member states. The analysis that results from this will illustrate the obstacles that stand in the way of the effective and uniform application of the directive across the Member States. Supervisors are Jan Smits, Anna Beckers and Marc Hertogh (University of Groningen).
