We are Tilburg University

Bio

My name is Phillip Paiement and I am an assistant professor in jurisprudence at Tilburg Law School. I received my PhD from Tilburg Law School in October 2015. Prior to that I completed an LLM in International Human Rights at Criminal Justice at Utrecht University and an MSt in Socio-Legal Research at Oxford University.

My current research focuses on transnational environmental and labour governance. In particular, I focus on the transjurisdictional diffusion of strategic litigation related to climate change, supply chain liability and land grabs. My previous research has focused on intersections between transnational private regulatory regimes and public law.

I teach in the fields of jurisprudence, legal theory and comparative law, including courses in the LLB Rechtsgeleerdheid, LLB Global Law and BA Liberal Arts.
