Egle is Senior Lecturer in Law at Anglia Law School. Educated in Lithuania, Sweden and the UK, she specialises in European Union law, human rights, social justice, migration and legal education.
Dr Dagilyte joined Anglia Law School having finished a traineeship at the Court of Justice of the European Union (EU) in Luxembourg. Prior to Anglia Ruskin, Egle taught law at King's College London, the University of Greenwich, and at Buckinghamshire New University, where she was awarded Bucks Fellowship for Excellence in Learning and Teaching. Outside academia, Egle's law-related work experience includes property industry, children's educational charity, and consultancy for NGOs and a number of IT business start-ups.
Egle’s academic interests lie in the area of human rights, European Union (EU) constitutional and internal market law, in particular the relationship between the EU and Member States, EU citizenship, free movement of persons, social justice and migration. She is especially interested in solidarity and how it manifests itself as a fundamental value in European law, policy and social rights.
Egle is currently working on a number of research projects, including a co-edited collection on the principle of solidarity in EU law; the access to UK welfare benefits by EU Roma citizens after the 2013/14 welfare reforms; and the differences between norms, rights and principles in EU human rights law. A selection of current publications is available on her Academia and SSRN pages.
