Elisa Palagi (1962-2018)

Students of European Law from the early 1990s will be saddened to learn of the death, in Italy last November, of Elisa Palagi. Elisa arrived in Dublin in September 1990 to take up a post as lecturer in European Law, teaching on both the BCL and LLM programmes. She stayed in that post for two years before returning to private practice in Brussels, specialising in European and, in particular, European Competition Law. In the late nineties she returned to live in her native Tuscany from where she continued to practise law with colleagues across the EU. She is survived by her husband Alessandro Tozzi, sister Caterina and brother Nicola.
