Victor Ferreres Comella earned his JSD from Yale Law School, with a thesis on Judicial Review and Democracy (1996). His work has focused on courts, fundamental rights, and European supranational structures.

His most recent publications are: Constitutional Courts and Democratic Values. A European Perspective (Yale University Press, 2009), and The Constitution of Spain: A Contextual Analysis (Hart Publishing, 2013). He has also written two books in Spanish: Justicia constitucional y democracia (Centro de Estudios Políticos y Constitucionales, 1997), which won the "Francisco Tomás y Valiente" Prize, awarded by the Spanish Constitutional Court and the Centro de Estudios Políticos y Constitucionales, and El principio de taxatividad en material penal y el valor normativo de la jurisprudencia (Civitas, 2002).

As a visiting professor, he has taught at New York University School of Law (2001, 2003, and 2007), and at the University of Texas School of Law (2005, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012). For ten years (2001-2011) he also taught at the Spanish Judicial School, where judges in Spain are trained.

He is on the editorial board of I.CON, International Journal of Constitutional Law, and is a member of the organizing committee of SELA (Seminario en Latinoamerica de Teoría Constitucional y Política), an annual gathering at the Southern Cone that brings together scholars from the Yale Law School and Latin American universities.
