Just before Christmas the government proposed Marc Jaeger, President of the General Court of the European Union, as the new chairman of the University’s Board of Governors.

Marc Jaeger, born in 1954, is of Luxembourg nationality. He holds a law degree from the Robert Schuman University of Strasbourg and studied at the College of Europe. Prior to his current post as President of the General Court since September 2007, he was Judge at the Luxembourg District Court (1984); Legal Secretary at the Court of Justice of the European Communities (1986-96); President of the Institut Universitaire International Luxembourg (IUIL). Marc Jaeger has been Judge at the General Court since 11 July 1996.

As one of the initiators of the Master in European Law, specialisation European Litigation, as well as adjunct senior lecturer at the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance since 2004, Marc Jaeger has since a long time and deeply been linked to our University.

"Judge Marc Jaeger is one of the first Luxembourgers I met when I arrived beginning of 2005. He has been a strong supporter of Higher Education in Luxembourg in general, and of the University in particular. There are few people who combine so perfectly leadership, expertise and efficiency on one hand with collegiality, flair and empathy on the other; a perfect profile for our university. He will be a great chairman, we welcome him very heartily", University President Rolf Tarrach stated.  

After eight years at the service of the University of Luxembourg, the former chairman of the University’s Board of Governors, Raymond Kirsch, had announced his resignation from his post in December.
