A new member to the Editorial Board of the Access to Justice in Eastern Europe Journal
We are pleased to welcome a new member to the Editorial Board of the Access to Justice in Eastern Europe Journal!
Professor Enrique Vallines is a Senior Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg for Procedural Law, working in the Department of European and Comparative Procedural Law. He has published works covering various areas such as access to information and evidence, evaluation of evidence and burden of proof, preclusion and res judicata, preliminary hearings in civil proceedings, European joint investigation teams, and impartiality and independence of jurors and persons entrusted with ADR proceedings.
Professor Vallines has been involved in several research projects that dealt with the harmonization of civil procedure in the EU and judicial cooperation in criminal matters within the EU. In 2019, he took over the general coordination of the project Comparative Procedural Law and Justice, of which he is also a co-editor, together with Prof. Burkhard Hess, Prof. Margaret Woo, and Prof. Loïc Cadiet. Additionally, his current research interests include European procedural law and legal theory on justice systems and procedure.
Also, Professor Vallines, together with our Editor-in-Chief, Professor Izarova, participated in the workshop "Rebuilding the Ukrainian Justice – Post War Perspectives," which was held on July 11, 2023, at the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg for Procedural Law. During the workshop, issues related to compensation for damages caused by the war were actively discussed as one of the most acute topics in contemporary Ukraine.
In August 2023, Professor Vallines will return to his former position as a Professor of Procedural Law at the Complutense University of Madrid in Spain.
Thank you for joining us, and we look forward to a fruitful cooperation!
