He defended his doctoral thesis in 2010, under supervision of Professor Marc Maresceau (La procédure d’avis devant la Cour de justice de l’Union européenne, Bruylant 2011). He then studied at Harvard University (LL.M.), where he benefitted from the Frank Boas Scholarship for Graduate Studies. After graduation, he was appointed a legal secretary at the CJEU, where he successively worked for Judge Nicholas J. Forwood (General Court), Advocate General Eleanor Sharpston (Court) and Judge Ricardo da Silva Passos (General Court), before recently joining the cabinet of the President of the Court, Koen Lenaerts. Stanislas thus enjoys a privileged position to take part in the development of EU case-law.
