Dr Albert Sanchez-Graells
I am a Reader in Economic Law at the University of Bristol Law School, a Member of the European Commission Stakeholder Expert Group on Public Procurement (2015-18), a Member of the European Procurement Law Group, and a Member of the Procurement Lawyers' Association Brexit Working Group.
I specialise in European economic law, with a main focus on competition law and public procurement, on which I wrote my PhD and published Public Procurement and the EU Competition Rules, 2nd edn (Oxford, Hart Publishing, 2015). Most of my working papers are available at http://ssrn.com/author=542893 and my analysis of current legal developments is published in this blog.
I am a regular speaker at international conferences and have been invited by the European Court of Auditors and the European Commission as an academic expert in public procurement and competition matters. I have also advised the World Bank and other international institutions regarding public procurement reform.
I joined the University of Bristol Law School in September 2015 as a Senior Lecturer and was promoted to Reader in August 2017. Previously, I was a Senior Lecturer in Commercial Law at the Law School of the University of Leicester (2013-15) and the acting Director of its Centre for European Law and Internationalisation (2014-15). Before that, I was a Lecturer at the University of Hull, where I also was Director of the Hull Commercial Law and Policy Centre (2012-13), and a Lecturer in Commercial and European Law at the Law Faculty of the Comillas Pontifical University (Madrid, Spain), as well as Director of its Master in International and European Business Law (2009-12).
Prior to joining academia, I once was a practising lawyer advising multinational corporations on competition and public procurement matters.
