Curriculum vitae

Jaakko Husa is Full Professor in Law and Globalisation at the University of Helsinki since April 2018. PhD (Public Law) in 1995. Before Helsinki he has held several full professorial chairs: Comparative Public Law (Uni Vaasa 98-03), Constitutional Law & Jurisprudence (Uni Eastern Finland 04-10), Legal Culture & Legal Linguistics (Uni Lapland 11-14), and Comparative Law and Constitutional Law (Uni Lapland 14-18). In 2006-2007 he held the position of Senior Research Fellow with the Academy of Finland.
 
Jaakko is also an Invited Fellow with Maastricht European Private Law Institute and a Titular Member of the International Academy of Comparative Law, and an Invited Member of the Finnish Academy of Science and Letters. He holds the position of Docent at the universities of Eastern Finland, Lapland, and Vaasa.
 
He has held visiting positions in Maastricht University, the Riga Graduate School of Law (Latvia), Law Faculty at the Hong Kong University, and Edinburgh University Law School (MacCormick Fellow). Specialist areas include theory of comparative law, comparative constitutional law, legal globalisation, legal cultures, and Nordic law. Jaakko is a firm supporter of internationally oriented legal scholarship, underlining the importance of studying law comparatively in context, and in a multidisciplinary manner. 
 
His recent research concerns global constitutionalism, legal globalisation, and comparative legal linguistics. The notion of rule of law is in a central place in his scholarship. Moreover, theory and methodology of comparative law remain continuously on Jaakko's research focus. He is a frequent invited speaker at international conferences on - broadly understood - comparative law. 
 
Beyond research he lectures, leads seminars and holds tutorials in law and globalisation and comparative law (broadly understood). He also serves on the Faculty Committee for Research, Doctoral Programme Steering Committee, and Global Governance Law Masters Programme Steering Committee (as a Deputy Director of the Programme). Jaakko is also a member of the Academic Advisory Board of the Helsinki University Press.
