After finishing my Law Degree at the University of Vienna in 1997, I worked as a trainee with the European Parliament and at two district courts in Austria. In 2000 I earned a Master’s Degree in Law and Information Technology from the University of Stockholm.
In 2001 I joined the Department of Law at Stockholm University as a junior lecturer in legal informatics. I have been teaching legal informatics to law students as well as computer scientists, both in Stockholm and other Swedish universities as well as at King’s College in London.
Since 2006 I have been writing my doctoral thesis ‘Legal Information as a Tool’ where I focus on legal information retrieval, the concept of legal information within the framework of the doctrine of legal sources and also examine the information-seeking behaviour of lawyers.
Within IT law my main focus areas have been privacy, electronic commerce and intellectual property rights. I have participated in several EU projects on IT related legal issues, such as eHealth, electronic procurement and data protection and published several articles and blog posts on legal information retrieval and legal informatics in general. In 2010 I authored Cyber Law in Sweden as part of Kluwer’s International Encyclopaedia for Cyber Law.
