Mr Eric Jeanpierre

Director of Studies and Senior Lecturer in Law

About

I am the Director of Studies and a Senior Lecturer at Kingston law School.

In relation to teaching, I am the module leader for 'International & Comparative Law' & 'International Criminal & Human Rights Law'. I am also part of the Public Law teaching team.

My research expertise and interest lie in comparative law, and in the relationship between Africa and international law / international justice. 

I am the founding member and joint director of the Globalisation and Law Group at Kingston university (webpage: http://law.kingston.ac.uk/research/globalisation-and-law-group & Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/202982686433156/ ).

I taught Law at City University, the University of Surrey and the University of North London. I was also visiting lecturer at the University of Maribor (Slovenia) and Mikolas Romeris University (Lithuania), and taught aspects of legal translations in the linguistics department at City University.

I am currently an external examiner at BPP.

Research

In March 2016, I addressed the European Commission's Directorate-General for Translation, in both Luxembourg and Brussels, on the pitfalls of legal translations between different legal families, with a focus on French to English. I was tasked with providing advice on the current major ongoing project for the DGT - the Commission's E-Justice Portal. The portal explains the legal systems and procedures of all the different EU countries in the 24 official EU languages.  In March and April 2016, I made two TV appearances on the ‘Africa This Week' programme on IC Channel (Sky 806) to provide an expert commentary on two International Criminal Court Cases (the Ruto case and the Bemba case), and I was invited in ‘The Report' programme on IC Channel (Sky 806) in November 2016 to comment on a report by the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court regarding American military activities in Afghanistan
