Professor Andreas Stephan appointed Head of UEA Law School
We are delighted to announce that Professor Andreas Stephan has been appointed as the new Head of UEA Law School from 1 August 2017.
Andreas Stephan is a member of the UEA’s renowned Centre for Competition Policy (CCP) and has a background in both law and economics, having published widely on all aspects of cartel enforcement. His research into public attitudes to price fixing and the design of the UK’s criminal cartel offence has been cited in various government and agency reports. Andreas has a particular interest in compliance issues and competition law in developing and emerging economies. He is a Non-Governmental Advisor to the International Competition Network’s (ICN) Advocacy Working and Cartel Working groups and a member of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) Research Partnership Platform. He regularly comments on competition cases in the UK national press, having been quoted in the Financial Times, The Times, Daily Telegraph and Daily Mail, among others, and invited to speak on BBC radio.
“I was an undergraduate student at the UEA Law School in the late 1990s and am therefore especially delighted to be the new Head of School. In the intervening years the Law School has doubled in size and throughout this time has retained an emphasis on good quality small-group teaching, a high level of student satisfaction and a friendly and approachable staff ethos. Many Law School alumni associate their time at UEA with the iconic Earlham Hall. The university now owns this building and has undertaken significant renovation work to make it a beneficial and pleasant learning environment. Recent restoration has included converting the former stable building into new teaching rooms and a dedicated space for student pro bono activity. A further extension is planned, providing a larger pro bono space and new offices to accommodate our ongoing expansion and development.
I look forward to working alongside my colleagues and our students and enabling the School to continue to go from strength to strength”
