Dr Pierre Schammo is a Reader in Law at Durham Law School. He holds degrees from the University of Oxford (Magdalen College), Leiden and Strasbourg. His research is at the intersection of financial and banking law, EU law and ‘law in context’.
Her research interests lie in the field of European Criminal law, and inter-state cooperation in the fight against crime more in general. She is particularly interested in the legitimacy and constitutional dimension of such cooperation, and she has explored this theme in the context of EU harmonisation of criminal law, judicial cooperation, notably transfers of prisoners, and EU cooperation with third states. She is a member of the European Criminal Law Academic Network, and an Associated, and managing Editor to the New Journal of European Criminal Law, one of the leading publications in this field.
