Would you like to work at the cutting edge of European law, helping judges, lawyers and other legal professionals to put the latest developments into practice?

The Academy of European Law is the leading partner of the European institutions, national authorities and professional associations in continuing professional training in European law across Europe.

We are looking for a new member of our team as soon as possible:

Lawyer (Course Director) for European Private Law
with special expertise in European Consumer Law

The job offers a variety of work and entails primarily the management of three key activities:

  • preparing and running training courses
  • organising high-level conferences
  • developing e-learning modules;

all targeted at practitioners of European law such as lawyers in private practice, in-house counsel and civil
servants, judges and notaries.

You will have an in-depth understanding of European law and extensive knowledge in European private law, coupled with an analytical mind-set, good networking and communication skills and fluency in at least two of ERA’s three working languages (English, French and German). Professional experience of legal practice ideally acquired in a consumer protection or law firm environment will be an advantage. Native English-speakers or lawyers with a common law background are particularly encouraged to apply.

We offer a competitive salary, private pension insurance scheme, the opportunity to work closely with leading experts in European law and the chance to be part of a dynamic multi-national team.

The post is for an initial fixed term of two years, after which an indefinite contract may be offered. The normal place of work is located at ERA’s premises in Trier, Germany, just over the border from the EU‘s judicial capital in Luxembourg. Regular travel is part of the job.

If you feel attracted by the idea of working in a genuine European team and promoting European law among European lawyers, please send us your CV, references and a motivation letter – indicating your salary expectations (applications without this information cannot be accepted) – in one of the Academy’s working languages by 6 January 2017 through the site
