‘Surrogacy and the Court of Justice of the European Union’ – 12 November, 2014

Eugenia Caracciolo di Torella (School of Law, Leicester)

Who should be able to use maternity related rights in case of surrogacy? The surrogate mother, the intended mother, or both? Such issues have recently been addresses by the EUCJ in two cases. These cases have highlighted that the EU is in urgent need to develop a set of legal rules that looks beyond how families are constructed and values and promotes the role of care and, ultimately, the best interests of the child.

This event is part of the 2014 CELI seminar series, and organised by the Labour Law research cluster.

Date: Wednesday, 12 November March, 1:00–3:00 pm

Venue: Jan Grodecki Room, first floor, Fielding Johnson Building (Maps and directions)
