After a PhD at the University Grenoble-Alpes, Aurélien Antoine was Senior Lecturer at the Auvergne University. After he passed the Agrégation, he has been a Professor of Public law at the Faculty of Law of Saint-Étienne since 2012. He is the vice-dean for International Affairs and Communication. He’s 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. He’s also the co-director of the institution which oversees the PhD students of the University of Lyon (École doctorale de Droit – ED 492).

Aurélien Antoine has published widely in comparative law, constitutional law and administrative law. His research principally deals with British public law. In November 2014, he organized an international conference on this subject. A book was published after it in 2015. In 2016, he has written 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 its 2018 edition, by Anthony W. Bradley, Emeritus Professor of the University of Edinburg. Since 2017 Pr. Aurélien Antoine has developed and directed the Brexit Observatory which is an academic body studying Britain’s divorce from the EU in its various aspects (law, politics and economics). He’s regularly consulted as an expert on Brexit matters by public institutions and the media. As a member of the oldest scientific law association in France, the Société de Législation Comparée, he is taking an active part in the works of two departments of collective research (administrative law and constitutional law). Since 2014, he has worked on the UK Supreme Court for a collective research about the making of the European constitutional courts’ decisions. He occasionally works with the Michel Villey Insitute in Paris and for the scientific website “Juspoliticum” about the historic and contemporary dimensions of the British political Constitution.

He also published in business public law. His 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, he developed on this matter a partnership with the Renmin University of China (Beijing), which was completed by two international conferences in China and France. He was invited in Bucarest by the Romanian Academy to present a comparative analysis of UK and French cultural institutions and heritage laws. He finally teaches business public law in foreign universities, especially in University of Sao Paulo (Brazil).

He is currently supervising five PhD in public law and he’s a member of the selection committees for Senior Lecturers in French universities.
