Phil Syrpis studied Law at the University of Cambridge, and obtained the BCL degree at Oxford in 1994. He completed a doctoral thesis which analysed the rationales for European Social Policy in 2000. In 2002 he was a Jean Monnet Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence. In his research, he attempts to define the outer limits of European Union competence and to explore the ways in which that competence should be sculpted. He has been at the University of Bristol since 1997. He is author of EU Intervention in Domestic Labour Law (Oxford University Press, 2007). His more recent research has been on the EU internal market, examining the relationship between the EU legislature and judiciary in that context, and on the process and implications of Brexit. He teaches a range of units on European Law at the University of Bristol, including LLM units in EU Trade Law, and Democracy and Legitimacy in the EU.
