New visitor at iCourts - Gerard Conway

Gerard Conway completed a BA (Law and European Studies at the University of Limerick) and barrister-at-law degrees (King’s Inns) in Ireland before studying at the University of Uppsala in Sweden for a master’s degree in international and comparative law (graduating in 2001). Research work for his master’s degree was published in a number of journals, including the European Journal of International Law and the International Criminal Law Review.

He then worked for four years (2001-2005) as a legal researcher in the Irish civil service, first as a legal trainee in the Department of Foreign Affairs (six months), as a judicial researcher (seven months), and as a legal researcher with the Director of Public Prosecutions (for nearly three years).

He next began working on his PhD, with the support of a scholarship from the Department of Education and Learning of Northern Ireland and a scholarship from the Modern Law Review, and also obtained full-time job as a lecturer at Leeds Metropolitan (now Leeds Beckett) University in 2006 before starting a lecturing job in Brunel University London in 2007. Gerard Conway completed his PhD at Brunel in 2011. He began publishing in European and international legal journals from 2001 and published a monograph by Cambridge University Press in 2012 entitled The Limits of Legal Reasoning and the European Court of Justice. He has also written a textbook entitled EU Law, published by Routledge in July 2015 in its Spotlights series.

In August-September 2015, he is a visiting researcher at the iCourts Centre of the University of Copenhagen in Denmark, working on the topic of styles of constitutional adjudication of emergent international courts. He was promoted to senior lecturer at Brunel with effect from October 2015.
