Jeremias Prassl

Jeremias read law at Corpus Christi College, Oxford and the University of Paris II (MA) as well as Harvard Law School (LL.M.) before returning to complete an AHRC-funded DPhil at Magdalen College, Oxford (2010-12). Prior to his election to a Fellowship at Magdalen, he was a Supernumerary Fellow of St John’s College, Oxford (2011-14), and a Stipendiary Lecturer at Jesus College (2010-11). Jeremias has also held visiting research or lecturing positions at Columbia Law School, New York; the Max Planck Institute, Hamburg; and University College, London. Since 2014, he has also been a Research Fellow at the Faculty’s Institute for European and Comparative Law (IECL).

Jeremias teaches Constitutional Law and EU Law at Magdalen, as well as Labour Law and Corporate Law for the Faculty. In 2013, he was awarded the University’s Teaching Excellence Award in the Social Sciences Division.

Jeremias’ principal research interests are in the fields of Employment Law, Corporate Law, and European Union Law (with a particular focus on Civil Aviation). In Employment Law, he focuses on the regulation of fragmenting labour markets—from outsourcing to Private Equity—and comparative research into European employment law in times of crisis (funded by the European Commission through INLACRIS), as well as consulting on projects for the International Labour Organisation (ILO).

His work in European law includes co-editing the EU Law in the Member States Series (Hart | Bloomsbury Publishing; with Michal Bobek), exploring the reception and implementation of EU-level norms across different Member States. In Civil Aviation, Jeremias is particularly interested in the interaction of the Montreal Convention of 1999 and EU Regulation 261/2004 in shaping the future of passenger rights. He serves on the committee of the Royal Aeronautical Society’s Air Law Group.

In 2015, Jeremias received a British Academy Rising Star Engagement Award to further his work in European Employment Law
