Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I am a Senior Lecturer in Civil Law and Commercial Law and the director of the International Business Law Master's Degree Programme. I teach contract law and commercial law as well as law and economics.

 

I have published three academic monographs (Osakassopimuksen tavoitteet ja voimassaolon hallinta (2008), Yhdenvertaisuus osakeyhtiössä (2012) and Osakkeen lunastaminen. Osakeyhtiö- ja sopimusoikeudellinen tutkimus (2015)) and altogether 20 peer-reviewed articles in national and international journals. In addition I have dozens of other publications such as two text books on company law (Johdatus osakeyhtiöoikeuteen (2011) and Osakeyhtiöikeuden oppikirja (2017)).

 

I am currently the main editor of an academic journal (Liikejuridiikka), a member in numerous international research projects and networks and, furthermore, an academic mentor for dozens of LL.M. and post graduate students. I have acted twice as an opponent in a doctoral defense. In 2016–2017 I held the position of vice-dean (teaching matters) at the Faculty of Law.

 

As for research work, I am concentrating at the moment on international cooperative law research and the title of my project is "The Sturcture of Cooperative Ownership and Control".
