Dr Albert Sanchez-Graells
I am a Senior Lecturer in Law at the University of Bristol Law School and a Member of the European Commission Stakeholder Expert Group on Public Procurement (2015-18). 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.
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.
I am a regular speaker at international conferences and have been invited by the European Court of Auditors and the European Comission 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.
