Trosolwyg

I hold a Chair in the School of Law and Politics, and have research interests in Comparative Law and European Civil Procedure. These interests combine in my work comparing the institutions responsible for the enforcement of judgments in various European countries, and more generally on debt recovery.

My work on civil procedure and enforcement is internationally recognised. For example, I contributed to the ELI/UNIDROIT Model European Rules of Civil Procedure and am currently participating in a global project on Comparative Procedural Law and Justice managed by the Max-Planck Institute Luxembourg for International, European and Regulatory Procedural Law.

Within the UK, I have participated in work to reform the law on civil enforcement and to raise standards in the enforcement industry, including the co-ordination of responses to consultation papers (as Chair of the Bailiff Law Reform Group) and membership of the Compliance, Adjudication and Review of Enforcement (CARE) Panel established by the Civil Enforcement Association (CIVEA).
