Pierre Schammo is Professor of Law at Durham Law School and co-director of the Durham European Law Institute. Before joining Durham University, he was a lecturer in company and commercial law at the University of Manchester, and a research fellow in European financial and corporate law at the British Institute of International and Comparative Law in London. He worked for Allen & Overy, Luxembourg. Pierre completed his D.Phil degree at the University of Oxford (Magdalen College) after graduating from the universities of Leiden, the Netherlands, and Strasbourg, France.
Pierre is associated with the Jean Monnet Centre for EU Studies at Keio University (Tokyo, Japan), the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence on Sustainable Finance and Law at the University of Genoa (Italy), and the Institute for Data Science at Durham. He was a visiting lecturer at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (University of London) and held visiting positions at Keio University, the London School of Economics and Political Science (European Institute) and at Oxford University (Institute of European and Comparative Law). He is an external examiner in the law department of University College London and, previously, the London School of Economics and Political Science. He is on the editorial advisory board of the Law and Financial Markets Review, as well as on the editorial board of The Company Lawyer.
Pierre’s research is mainly at the intersection of financial/banking law, EU law and ‘law in context’. He has written extensively on prospectus regulation and regulatory competition, as well as on the European System of Financial Supervision, the Banking Union and the Capital Markets Union. More recent research includes work on technological change as well as on green finance. Pierre's work on the Capital Markets Union was cited by the European Commission in the context of the Commission's initiatives on SME funding. His research on abuse of law in the EU legal order, and the European System of Financial Supervision was cited by the Court of Justice of the European Union. His work on the European System of Financial Supervision informed the draft recommendations of the European Parliament’s Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON) on reforming the 'breach of Union law procedure' of the European Supervisory Authorities. He acted as UK co-rapporteur on the Banking Union for the 27th congress of the Federation of European Lawyers (FIDE) and as an expert on European banking supervision for the 13th Luxembourg expert forum (13. Luxemburger Expertenforum) at the Court of Justice of the European Union.
