Background

LL.M. 1992, Umeå University.
LL.D. 2003, Umeå University.

I have been working at the Department of Law, Umeå University since 1994.

Teaching

My teaching, that is based on the pedagogical approach Problem Based Learning, is mainly concerning compensation law, in public and private legislation, on different courses. I am also cours director for the cours 'Compensations Law'.  

Research

My main research area concerns compensation law from different perspectives; especially public compensations schemes such as social insurance or state compensation. The general focus are co-ordination or collisions between or within compensation schemes.     

This research attaches to a number of different legal fields and, consequently, I am a part of three research themes; 'Social Welfare in Law', 'Victims of Crime' and 'The Relation between Private Law and Public Law - The Twilight Zon'.
