The ELI Spanish Hub to be launched in May 2016

A new Hub is about to join the ELI hubs-community in Europe. Spanish members of the ELI have been actively promoting the establishment of a national hub in their country for the last few months. These efforts have developed into a concrete proposal that will see the light in spring 2016. The Spanish ELI Hub will be launched on 9 May 2016, coinciding with Europe Day.

The event will take place at the Spanish Centre of Political and Constitutional Studies, which belongs to the Spanish Ministry of Presidency and which kindly offered its support to this event. The event, which will focus on the interaction between European law and Spanish law, will count on the presence and participation of the ELI President, Diana Wallis, and its Secretary General, Rosana Garciandía. Diana Wallis will deliver a welcome address and introduce the ELI. Prominent speakers of the Spanish legal landscape will participate in the event: Encarnación Roca Trías, Magistrate of the Spanish Constitutional Court, will speak about “The influen e of the European Jurisprudence on the Spanish Constitutional Court”. Théophile M. Margellos, President of the OHIM Boards of Appeal, will address the audience about the European dimension of dispute resolution, focusing on IP Litigation. Professor Ángel Carrasco Perera, Professor of Private Law at the University of Castilla-La Mancha, will focus on the role of European soft law in online sales. The European dimension of the Spanish Jurisdiction will be analised by Juan Luis Requejo Pagés, Legal Secretary at the CJEU and Professor of Constitutional Law, who will talk about the CJEU and the ECHR as national Courts.
