I am a Lawyer and a professor of Civil Law. These are two areas of my profession which I am passionate about and complement each other: I am a better professor because I have a practical vision of Law and the knowledge acquired through my research aids me as a lawyer.
Upon completing my degree in Law with an extraordinary award, I obtained my doctorate with an “Excellent Cum Laude “distinction from the University of Bologna in 2003. Since 2007, and having passed a public exam, I have been a professor of Civil Law at Granada University.
I have written four books and almost a hundred articles and book chapters regarding unfair terms in contracts, financial and investment products, tort law and the digital economy. I am proud because some of my publications have become key references, expressly mentioned in sentences, some of my theories have been taken as jurisprudence by the Supreme Court. My research work has been awarded with the prestigious Cervello Award from the Instituto de Empresa and the Royal Academy of Jurisprudence in Granada, and the Legislation Award for the best doctoral thesis. I regularly participate as a speaker at national and international conferences , I have managed some national projects financed by the Ministry of Innovation and Science, I have taught at the University of Granada and the Judicial School of Barcelona and on some different degrees and master´s courses at the Universitat Obert of Catalunya (UOC), the University School of financial Studies (CUNEF), the International University of Andalusia ( UNIA) and at the Jagiellonian University of Krakow.
I have been practising as a lawyer since 2006. I enjoy wearing the gown and appearing in court, something that I have successfully done in some of the most demanding Courts, such as the European Court of Justice. Other colleagues sometimes trust me with their most complex issues, and I also draft technical reports for companies and public administrations. Honesty, study, and technical rigour define me as a lawyer. I only accept a case if I have the knowledge and the time required for seeing it through conscientiously.
For that reason, working as a Counsel Lawyer for a firm which demands such a high level of excellence as Blas Gonzalez satisfies me.
