Alexander Hellgardt accepts call to Regensburg University

Prof. Dr. Alexander Hellgardt, Senior Research Fellow at the MPI for Tax Law and Public Finance, has accepted a call to Regensburg University. He will take over the Chair of Private Law, Corporate Law and Jurisprudence, on 1 April 2017.

Alexander Hellgardt studied Law and Philosophy (B.A.) at Eberhard-Karls-University in Tübingen, Hamburg University and Harvard University. He wrote his dissertation on capital market liability at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative and Private Law in Hamburg and received his doctoral degree in 2008. After a research stay at Harvard Law School, Hellgardt started working as a Senior Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance in 2009. In July 2015 he was conferred his post-doctoral degree (Habilitation) by the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich, where he then worked as an acting professor during the 2015/16 winter term and the 2016 summer term. During the 2016/2017 winter term he already served as an acting professor at Regensburg University.

The post-doctoral dissertation Alexander Hellgardt authored during his time as a senior research fellow at the MPI for Tax Law and Public Finance addresses the question of how legislators and courts use private law in order to pursue public interest goals. Titled “Regulierung und Privatrecht” (Regulation and Private Law), it has recently been  published by Mohr Siebeck.
