Associate Professor of Law

Dr Jeremias Prassl read law at Corpus Christi College, Oxford and the University of Paris II (MA) as well as Harvard Law School (LL.M.) before returning to complete an AHRC-funded DPhil at Magdalen College, Oxford (2010-12). He regularly lectures in Paris and Beijing, and has held or is holding visiting posts at Columbia Law School, New York, the Max Planck Institute, Hamburg and University College, London. Prior to taking up his Fellowship at St John’s, Jeremias was a Stipendiary Lecturer at Jesus College, Oxford. His principal research interests are in the fields of Employment Law, European Union Law, and Civil Aviation.

In Employment Law, Jeremias is particularly interested in the application of regulatory norms in fragmenting labour markets. Recent work includes an in-depth analysis of the notion of the employer in multilateral organisational settings (from agency employment to Private Equity portfolio companies) and critiques of the newly introduced notion of employee shareholders. Jeremias also serves on the steering committee of INLACRIS, a European Commission-funded network monitoring changes in Social and Labour Law in response to the financial crisis.

In EU Law, he has set up a series of international comparative workshops on the reception and implementation of landmark CJEU judgments in domestic law, beginning in September 2013 with Cases C-438/05, Viking and C-341/05 Laval. Jeremias is also a member of the editorial team for the Ius Commune Casebook on the Horizontal Effects of Primary EU Law.

His work on the EU Passenger Rights Regulation 261/2004 specialises on the purported exclusivity of the Montreal Convention in regulating air carriers’ contractual liability, and has led to consulting and executive education work in the Civil Aviation industry.
