Call for Authors: Smit & Herzog on the Law of the European Union

The editors of Smit & Herzog on the Law of the European Union have issued a call for authors. Here's the call:


Smit & Herzog on the Law of the European Union

Herzog, Campbell & Zagel eds

This four-volume loose-leaf founded by Prof Hans Smit and Prof Peter Herzog more than 30 years ago was the first English-language and remains the most comprehensive article-by-article commentary of the treaties through which the European Union is established and operates.

The editors seek to refresh Smit & Herzog’s stable of authors on the occasion of the recent or impending retirement of several of the highly regarded academics and practitioners who have contributed to Smit & Herzog for many years. For the relevant (groups of) articles, see here.

We invite expressions of interest from holders of doctoral (or higher) degrees in European Union law (with teaching and research or practice experience).

The parameters for engagement would be (i) to prepare, over the next 12-18 months, updates or rewrites of existing commentary or in some cases submit new manuscripts on articles as yet without commentary and (ii) to commit to update said commentary (at least once) in the ensuing 3-5 years. The publication issues update releases every six months.

A very general template is to be followed in preparing the commentaries, but this still allows ample scope for each author to analyse the provisions according to her or his own expert approach.

For additional information, please contact referencing “Smit & Herzog” in the subject line.
