Clifford Chance funds Oxford Euro chair

Clifford Chance is funding a new Oxford University professorship of European Law. The professor will direct the university's new Centre for the Advanced Study of European Comparative Law. The post is being advertised across Europe. Vice-chancellor Dr Peter North QC says: “The professorship will provide a focus for legal analysis, study and research at the highest level in this international field.” Clifford Chance senior partner Keith Clark says the move demonstrates the firm's “commitment to the study and development of European law”.
