Egle is Senior Lecturer in Law. She specialises in European Union law, human rights, social justice, migration and legal education.
With academic degrees from Lithuania, Sweden and the UK, Dr Dagilyte joined Anglia Ruskin 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.
Egle is a Fellow of the Centre of European Law at King's College London, Senior Fellow of Advance HE and sits on the Executive Committee of the Association of the Law Teachers (ALT) and on the Steering Group of the Legal Education Research Network (LERN).
In the past, she acted as a country expert on the European Commission’s projects and has consulted non-governmental organisations and a number of IT business start-ups. In 2015, Egle was named as one of the Top 50 UK higher education social media influencers by Jisc, which is the UK's expert body for digital technology and digital resources in higher education, further education and research.
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 socio-legal manifestations of solidarity in EU law and EU citizenship; how the EU Court of Justice uses the proportionality test to adjudicate social rights; mapping migration patterns and motivations of migrant workers in Cambridgeshire; and EU citizens' rights after Brexit. Her current publications are available to download on Academia and SSRN.
