Current research

Animal law: Broad research into animal law, including how different ethical positions are reflected in animal legislation. Current topics include the legal representation of animals in various contexts (criminal and civil litigation, administrative law, a possible animal ombudsman, etc.) and questions concerning the Danish Animal Welfare Act that entered intp force in 2021.

Environmental Law: Broad interest in questinos concerning environmental law, e.g. questions relating to legal subjectivity and different regulatory approaches.

Digital management: What is the legal framework for digitalisation in the public sector? Currently focus on the underlying legal principles and values on which the authorities must (or should) base their use of digital systems, insofar as there are no authoritative sources of law that address the issues in question. A particular focus point is the use of machine learning: What criteria can be identified for the use of such algorithms by public authorities?
