Edinburgh Centre for Private Law

The Edinburgh Centre for Private Law (ECPL), founded in 2009, exists to foster and develop this long tradition of private law scholarship. Building on Edinburgh’s position as a major university within Europe’s main mixed jurisdiction, much of the research carried out by its members examines Scots law in a European context or fosters a dialogue between the civilian tradition and the common law.
