ERASMUS+ staff mobility
April 06-08, 2017
As part of the ERASMUS+ staff mobility program, BFC faculty member Prof. (FH) Dr. Armin Kammel, LL.M., MBA spent a few days in London conducting independent research at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (IALS).
IALS is a postgraduate research institute with a core of researchers, research students and legal information professionals, which draws its primary membership from academic researchers and postgraduate research students from other institutions throughout the UK.
IALS is a member-institute of the School of Advanced Study in the University of London. It is worth pointing out that the IALS Library is outstanding, as a national and international resource for legal research and has over 288,000 volumes the majority of which are housed at the Institute site on Russell Square in Bloomsbury and provides services to researchers in the wider legal community.
The collections of foreign and international law are the most extensive in the UK and contain much unique material. The collections concentrate primarily on common law, civil law and Roman-Dutch law systems throughout the world and include material in western European languages for all jurisdictions for comparative and general reference purposes.
Prof. (FH) Dr. Kammel has been an IALS Associate Research Fellow since December 2016 and used the excellent facilities to continue research in the area of financial regulation throughout his stay. This work will both lead to a publication in the area of the European financial architecture as well as a building block for future LBS teaching.
