> Version française

After a PhD at the University Grenoble-Alpes, I was Senior Lecturer at the Auvergne University. After I passed the Agrégation, I have been a Professor of Public law at the Faculty of Law of Saint-Étienne since 2012. I’m the vice-dean for International Affairs and Communication. I’m the director of the College of Law and co-director of the Master II « Public procurement » in association with the universities of Lyon II and Lyon III. I’m also the co-director of the institution which oversees the PhD students of the University of Lyon (École doctorale de Droit – ED 492).

I publish widely in comparative law, constitutional law and administrative law. My research principally deals with British public law. In November 2014, I organized an international conference on this subject. A book was published after it in 2015. In 2016, I wrote a study on the British Constitutional Law published by the LGDJ and prefaced by Lord Mance, vice-president of the UK Supreme Court, and also for the 2018 edition, by Anthony W. Bradley, Emeritus Professor of the University of Edinburg. Since 2017 I have developed and managed the Brexit Observatory which is an academic body studying Britain’s divorce from the EU in its various aspects (law, politics and economics). I’m regularly consulted as an expert on Brexit matters by public institutions and the media. I organized an international conference on the Law and Politics of Brexit in December 2018 (with Kalypso Nicolaïdis, Paul Craig, John Bell and Jack Simson Caird). As a member of the oldest scientific law association in France, the Société de Législation Comparée, I’m taking an active part in the works of two departments of collective research (administrative law and constitutional law which I’ve chaired since 2019). In 2014, I worked on the UK Supreme Court for a collective research about the making of the European constitutional courts’ decisions (supervised by the Public Interest Group « Law and Justice » - GIP « Droit et Justice »). I occasionally work with the Michel Villey Insitute in Paris and for the scientific website “Juspoliticum” about the historic and contemporary dimensions of the British political Constitution.

I also work on business public law. My researches are about the application of competition law to public bodies, public contracts, and the enhancement of public properties (more particularly the enhancement of the cultural heritage). From 2009 to 2012, I developed a partnership with the Renmin University of China (Beijing), which was completed by two international conferences in China and France. I was invited in Bucarest by the Romanian Academy to present a comparative analysis of UK and French cultural institutions and heritage laws. I finally teach business public law in foreign universities, especially in University of Sao Paulo (Brazil).

I’m currently supervising five PhDs in public law.
