Juan A. Mayoral has been appointed as Assistant Professor in Law & Politics as of 1 of September 2017.

Juan A. Mayoral joined iCourts as a postdoctoral research fellow in 2014, and he has now been appointed as Assistant Professor in Law & Politics as a member of iCourts. Juan holds a PhD in Political and Social Sciences at the European University Institute and the CEACS-Juan March Institute. He holds a BA in Law (2004), in Philosophy (2005) and in Political Science and Administration (2006).

In 2009, he obtained a MA in Democracy and Governance in the Autonomous University of Madrid.

Juan’s fields of interest is quite broad and involves Law & Politics; International Relations; Judicial Politics; Comparative Regional Projects; Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU); National courts; EU law; Judicial Cooperation; Quantitative and Qualitative (mixed-) methods. This is also reflected in his extensive teaching experience, and he has taught at multiple courses at the University of Copenhagen both at BA- and MA-level.

His previous work has been published, among others, in the Journal of Common Market Studies, Journal of European Public Policy and Comparative European Politics, and in 2015 he won the Best Thesis Prize from the Spanish Association of Political Science and Administration for his thesis titled “The Politics of Judging EU law”. He was also recently appointed as Academic Convenor of the Law and Courts Section at the European Consortium for Political Research.

Juan’s current research involves developing the JUDTRUST project where he investigates national judges' trust in the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) and particularly how trust might have decisive influence on the development of a more integrated European judiciary and legal systems.
