New Professors at Department of Law
Lena Gipperth and David Langlet are the Department's two new professors.
Lena Gipperth is professor of Environmental Law.
Gipperth leads and participates in multidisciplinary research projects concerning achievement of environmental quality objectives, e.g. Changing antifouling practices for leisure boats in the Baltic Sea, CHANGE, and Zostera restoration, ZORRO. Gipperth is also research coordinator of the Swedish Institute for the Marine Environment.
David Langlet is professor of Marine Governance Law.
Langlet's more recent research spans a broad number of topics in the areas of environmental and energy law, law of the sea, and international economic law. He has particularly taken an interest in issues relating to carbon capture and storage (CCS), chemicals, energy efficiency and energy infrastructure, particularly transboundary sea based pipelines. Currently his primary focus is on security of supply and sustainable management of natural resources, especially minerals, in a transboundary context.
Gipperth and Langlet are going to contribute to the development of the department's research group - the Ocean Group. Two visiting professors are also affiliated to the group - Rosemary Rayfuse, University of New South Wales, Australia and Kees Bastmeijer, Tilburg University, The Netherlands.
