CV / Biography

Dr Lorand Bartels is Reader in International Law in the Faculty of Law and a Fellow of Trinity Hall at the University of Cambridge, where he teaches international law, WTO law and EU law. He holds degrees in English literature and law from the University of New South Wales and a PhD in law from the European University Institute. He was previously a University Lecturer (2007-11) and a University Senior Lecturer (2011-16). Before joining Cambridge, Dr Bartels was a Lecturer in International Economic Law at the University of Edinburgh (2003-2007). He also spent a year as an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow and an AHRC Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law, Heidelberg (2007).

Dr Bartels has taught at several other universities, including the IELPO (Barcelona) masters program on trade law, and in 2006 he lectured on the EU's trade and development policy at the EUI's Academy of European Law. He taught an annual intensive course on WTO law to officials at the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade for a decade.

Dr Bartels is a member of the ILA's study group on free trade agreements and helped to establish the Society of International Economic Law. He is a general editor of the Cambridge International Trade and Economic Law Series (CUP), an associate editor of the Journal of World Trade and an editorial board member of several journals, including the Journal of International Economic Law, the Journal of International Dispute Settlement and Legal Issues of Economic Integration.

Dr Bartels has acted as expert consultant on international law and EU law to a number of countries, NGOs and international organizations, and has written a number of reports for the European Parliament on the EU's trade and human rights policies, fisheries law, and treaty law. In 2011, he conducted a review of the SADC Tribunal, which has resulted in a new Protocol to the SADC Treaty. He is a standing member of the advisory panel of the UK Department for International Development's Trade Advocacy Fund for developing countries and of an advisory panel on trade policy for the Commonwealth Secretariat.
