Sérvulo Correia launches “Cadernos Sérvulo” Collection


With the collection “Cadernos Sérvulo” the firm’s Public Law department aims to make available online to its clients, collaborators and the wider legal community, important research that has not previously been published and which has been developed through the department’s practice.

The collection, which is coordinated by partners Rui Medeiros, João Amaral e Almeida and Mark Kirkby, with the executive support of António Cadilha and Pedro Fernández Sánchez, is divided into five areas of specialization: Public Law, Public Contracts, Administrative Litigation and Arbitration, Urbanism and Environment and Energy Law.

The paper that inaugurates the collection is the first issue on Public Law, and, authored by Professor Sérvulo Correia, it deals with the Constitutional Law of the territorial collectivities in Portugal. The article (in Portuguese) can be read in full here.

The next issue in the collection will be the first one of the Public Contracts series, and, authored by Pedro Fernández Sánchez, it will analyse the use of autonomous ground for exclusion of proposals provided for in Line f) of Paragraph 2 of Article 70 of the Portuguese Public Contracts Code as an alternative means of protection of the contracting authority against abnormally low-cost tenders.

This collection reflects SÉRVULO’s added value as a centre of knowledge, where academic theory is tested daily through application to concrete legal mandates, thereby contributing to the innovation of law. The papers in this collection are based on work done by SÉRVULO lawyers on specific cases, and, without breach of confidentiality or conflict with pending cases, they combine scientific research with practical relevance.
