Ford Legal Workshop: 10th Workshop 1975

Community Law and the Individual

The 10th Legal Workshop organised by the Institute, and financed with the help of the Ford Foundation, was held from Tuesday 1st July to Friday 4th July 1975 at Connaught Hall, University of London. The subject of the Workshop, which took place shortly after the referendum on UK membership of the European Community, was: Community Law and the Individual. It was directed by Professor F.G. Jacobs, Professor of European Law in the University of London.

The 44 participants came from university law faculties throughout the United Kingdom and we had the support of the Ford Visiting American professor, Professor Eric Stein, from the University of Michigan, together with Professor W. van Gerven of Louvain, and four speakers from the commission of the European Communities in Brussels (M. Paul Lleux, Miss Karen Fogg, Dr. M. Hilf, and Dr R Wagenbaur) as well as participants from Government departments, from the Law Commission, and from the practising professions.
