Biography

Toni Marzal joined the School of Law in 2018. He comes from Barcelona, which makes him Spanish and Catalan.

Previously he was a Lecturer (maître de conférences) at the Sorbonne Law School in Paris (2015-2018), where he directed the double degree in French and Spanish law in collaboration with the Complutense University in Madrid, and taught occasionally at Sciences Po Law School. He was also a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence (2014-2015) and a visiting researcher at Harvard and Columbia Law Schools. Additionally, he has experience practising as a lawyer in international arbitration in a US law firm based in Paris (2012-2014).

Toni obtained an LLB and an LLM from ESADE Law School in Barcelona, and an LLM in private international law and international law commerce from the Sorbonne.

He defended his PhD at the Sorbonne in October 2013. The PhD was subsequently awarded three different prizes: the André Isoré grand award of the Chancellerie des Universités de Paris in Private Law, the Pierre-Henri Teitgen award in European Law, and the Institut Universitaire Varenne award in European Law. It has since been published as a book in French by LGDJ, under the title: La dynamique du principe de proportionnalité. Essai dans le contexte des libertés de circulation du droit de l’Union européenne.


Research interests

Toni is interested in issues that cut across several legal disciplines.

His initial research dealt with proportionality and how the particular use of this legal tool in the legal reasoning of the Court of Justice of the European Union reflected a certain legal culture that is specific to EU law.

In addition to proportionality and legal reasoning, he takes a keen interest in legal cultures from a comparative and pluralist perspective, as reflected and managed in private law regimes, EU law and private international law. He is also interested in the circulation of legal ideas, including the broad themes of “Americanization” (the essential components of an “American” way of doing law, and its possible influence outside the US) and “Europeanization” (particularly the interactions between domestic legal systems and EU law, as reflected for instance in the debate around Catalan independence).
