Biography

Toni Marzal joined the School of Law in 2018. 

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 as an external lecturer 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 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 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.

Toni was a visiting scholar in Mexico City in August 2019 at the IIJ-UNAM (Instituto de Investigaciones Jurídicas-Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México), and during the fall semester of 2021 at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

Research interests

Toni's research focuses on the following areas:

  • International investment law & international arbitration
  • EU constitutional law
  • Comparative law & comparative legal theory
  • Private international law
  • Legal reasoning

His current research addresses the relationship between law and valuation, for which he has received a Leverhulme Research Fellowship. 

He welcomes PhD proposals that fit within any of these fields and preoccupations.
