The Utrecht Centre for Accountability and Liability Law (UCALL) is pleased to announce that Matthew Dyson (Trinity College, Cambridge) has accepted its invitation to become a UCALL Fellow.

UCALL-researchers Excel

The  UCALL-researchers that focus on private law, participate in the Ius Commune Research School which has been reviewed in 2013 by a committee of peers, led by Prof. M. Wissink. The component ‘Liability & Insurance’, at that time still led by Ivo Giesen en Willem van Boom (EUR), finished in a shared first place as the best of all the evaluated research programs, with a total score of 4.8 on a scale of 5. The subcomponent ‘quality of the research group’ even received the maximum score of 5. Given the importance of Ius Commune to UCALL and the close links between the two groups, this is very pleasing news.
