Elon Law scholar elected Visiting Fellow at Cambridge

Professor Henry Gabriel will spend three months this spring as a distinguished visitor with Cambridge University’s Wolfson College where he will research comparative commercial law at the Center for Corporate and Commercial Law.

An Elon University professor renowned for his legal scholarship in the field of international commercial law has been elected a visiting fellow at Cambridge University’s Wolfson College for the 2023 Easter Term.

Professor Henry Gabriel is spending April, May and June researching comparative commercial law at the Faculty of Law’s Center for Corporate and Commercial Law.

Wolfson College describes fellows as “either distinguished visitors who come to Wolfson to pursue a scholarly project or younger outstanding academics who are affiliated with a Cambridge department/faculty.”

The Center for Corporate and Commercial Law is a research unit housed within the Law School where Gabriel has an office. Wolfson takes approximately a dozen fellows each year who are affiliated in academic departments throughout the university.

A widely recognized expert in commercial law, Gabriel has spent the last three decades actively engaged in the development of domestic and international law. Appointed by successive administrations, for over 20 years he has been a United States Delegate to the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law. He is now serving his fourth term on the Governing Council of UNIDROIT (International Institute for the Unification of Private Law) in Rome.

The author of ten books and over 80 law review articles and book chapters, Gabriel has twice been a Distinguished Fulbright Professor, first in Portugal and then in Italy. He is an elected and life member of the American Law Institute and a Fellow of the European Law Institute.

Gabriel has been counsel in more than 50 federal appeals in the Supreme Court of the United States and the United States Courts of Appeal.
