Pedro Caro de Sousa
Pedro Caro de Sousa is a D.Phil candidate at Lady Margaret Hall at the University of Oxford. His doctoral thesis focuses on the interplay between normative and institutional considerations to be found in judicial decisions concerning economic constitutional provisions in federal, co-federal and transnational settings. In his work, Pedro focuses mainly on free movement provisions in the EU setting to demonstrate the dynamic interaction between purely theoretical considerations and the institutional setting where the relevant adjudicatory bodies operate.
Pedro obtained his law degree at Universidade Nova de Lisboa in 2005. From 2002 to 2004 he worked for the Judge’s Support Cabinet at the Portuguese Constitutional Court. Pedro is also a Portuguese qualified lawyer, and from 2005 to 2008 he worked at Linklaters LLP as an attorney, focusing mainly on EU and Competition law. At Oxford, Pedro has tutored Competition Law to undergraduates in the capacity of a Graduate Teaching Assistant, and tutored EU law at King’s College London in the capacity of Visiting Tutor.
