Professor Geraint Howells
European and Comparative Consumer Law
European and Comparative Consumer Law Geraint Howells places emphasis on the need to study law in a European and comparative context. He considers a better appreciation of most consumer law topics can be gained from studying how those matters are dealt with in other legal systems. The impact of Europe on consumer law in the United Kingdom is obvious to all and he is currently particularly interested in the question of where the line should be drawn between European and national competence. He is closely involved in the debates on the harmonisation of European private law, for instance working in the Acquis and Trento projects and being a participant in the European Contract Law Association (Secola) and Social Justice network.
