The Law Group focusses on legal solutions to social problems, including those studied in life sciences domains. These issues touch on every aspect of the law, which means that we have collective expertise on matters relating to EU law, food law, environmental law, international law, WTO law, intellectual property law, private law and human rights law. The research of the group is also strongly interdisciplinary, with faculty and students from all over the world.

Our research

The group focuses on the law and regulation pertaining to private and public actors of the global economy, such as companies, consumers, states, international organizations, and civil society organizations, in the supra-, inter- and transnational arenas.
