Professorship in Civil Procedure in Luxembourg


The University of Luxembourg is seeking to recruit a professor of civil procedure for next academic year.

Candidates with a strong interest in international or European civil procedure are most welcome. Indeed, Luxembourg should soon welcome a Max Planck Institute focusing on procedure, and one of its directors will be a specialist of international and European civil procedure. There should therefore soon be several scholars based in Luxembourg and interested in the field, who will hopefully conduct common research projects.

It should be noted that candidates should be ready to teach Luxemburgish civil procedure in the bachelor programme, which is inspired from French civil procedure.
