General Information: 

Individual researcher.

Mission and Objectives: 

My current research focuses on legal and normative diversity in the European past and the Mediterranean present.

Main Projects / Activities: 

I’m co-editing a book on the Western legal traditions. I’m also leading an interdisciplinary project on Mediterranean legal and normative hybridity, the mixtures and movements of state laws and other norms in the region. Scholars from the Mediterranean and around the world have committed to work on the project. My research and teaching interests include comparative law, legal history and theory, and public law. My work has included comparative law, comparative legal history, constitutional history, intellectual history, and legal history and theory. I am founder and Vice-President of the Irish Society of Comparative Law and Secretary of the National Committee (Ireland) with the International Academy of Comparative Law. I am Chairman of Juris Diversitas and on the Executive Council of the Irish Legal History Society and the European Society for Comparative Legal History.
