Stanislas Adam


Stanislas Adam currently works as a legal secretary at the Court of Justice (Luxembourg) and teaches EU law at Ghent University (namely, the courses on "Contemporary Issues in EU Law: Federalism in the EU and the USA compared" and the "Advanced EU Competition Law"). He is also guest lecturer at the University of Luxembourg during the academic year 2016-2017 for the course on "Le marché intérieur en principes".

After graduating in law at the UCL and in European law at Ghent University, he was awarded a doctorate fellowship from the National Fund for Scientific Research – Flanders (FWO). Professor Adam successfully defended his PhD in 2010, under supervision of Professor Marc Maresceau (“La procédure d’avis devant la Cour de justice de l’Union européenne”, Bruylant 2011). He was then awarded the Frank Boas Scholarship for graduate studies at Harvard University, where he obtained the Master of Laws degree (2011). After graduating from Harvard, he was appointed a legal secretary at the General Court of the European Union. He subsequently moved to the chambers of the British Advocate General at the Court. As from November 2016, Stanislas works as a legal secretary for the Portuguese Judge with the General Court (Ricardo da Silva Passos). Stanislas thus enjoys a privileged position allowing him to take part in the development of EU case-law.

Stanislas has extensively published (in French, English and Dutch) in EU law and Belgian administrative and constitutional law.
