Existing EC Private Law


Prof Gerhard Dannemann


Professor Dannemann is one of the founding members of the European Research Group on EC Private Law (Acquis Group). Founded in 2002, this Group currently consists of some 50 legal scholars from most EU member states. The Acquis Group aims to achieve a systematic arrangement of what already exists in community law in the area of private law. The Acquis Group bases its work on this acquis communautaire of private law rules and aims to distill from this principles and rules which will help to define the common structures of an emerging community private law. Within this group, Professor Dannemann heads both the Redaction Committee and the Terminology Group. To date, the Acquis Group has published two volumes of "Principles of the Existing EC Contract Law"in 2007 and 2009; a third and final book is still outstanding.
