Anna Wallerman was awarded her doctorate from the University of Gothenburg (Sweden) in 2015. She has since been a visiting research fellow at the University of Zurich (Switzerland) and an associate senior lecturer at the University of Gothenburg, where she teaches civil procedure and EU law at undergraduate and master levels. In 2015 she received the Common Market Law Review Young Academics Prize.

Anna’s research interests lie in the interrelation between the European and national judiciaries, and she is particularly interested in judicial decision making and the role of courts and judges in modern democratic society. In her doctoral thesis she studied how extensive reliance on judicial discretion regulation affects the dispensation of civil justice and the Europeanization of civil procedure. She has also published several papers on the impact of Union law on national procedures and the prospect of harmonization.

During her Max Weber Fellowship, Anna will be working on a project provisionally titled ‛As You Sow, So Shall You Reap?’.The project will explore the forms of communication between national courts and the European Court of Justice when requesting and delivering preliminary rulings, with the aim to establish whether and how national courts are able to influence the development of EU law through the preliminary reference procedure.
