Students at the University of Lincoln will be getting an expert insight into European safety law next month.


Law professor Jo Carby-Hall OBE will be giving a lecture to students, staff and members of the public at 5pm on Monday 4th March in the Cargill Lecture Theatre.


Entitled ‘A Trilogy in European Safety Law’, the lecture will address aspects of European health and safety law, including the Framework Health and Safety Directive, the Working Time Directive and the Social Dialogue.


Eighty students of European Community Law will be attending, and the talk may be of interest to employers and employees within the local community. 


Professor Carby-Hall is the Director of International Legal Research at the Centre for Legislative Studies in the Department of Politics and International Studies at the University of Hull. 


He is a Professor at Bordeaux IV University, Paris V University and the Centre for Social Policy Research in Nantes, France.  He is also a Partner Jean Monnet Professor at the Centre of European Studies, Nicholas Copernicus University, Torun, Poland and a Visiting Professor at Lodz University, Poland.


He is an Advocate and Honorary Consul for the Republic of Poland and has been decorated by the Polish Government for his services to education and research in Poland. He was awarded the OBE in the 2001 New Year Honours List for his services to legal scholarship in this country and overseas.


“We are pleased that such an eminent professor is to come to Lincoln to deliver a lecture to our students,” said a university spokesman.


“The impact of European law on the UK is increasing all the time, and it is important that our law students have access to the most up-to-date advice on the topic.”
