What we do

The Foundation of the Chair Law of Economic Regulation was supported by the COGNOS AG education group in the framework of its strategic partnership with HHL. In 2014, Prof. Dr. iur. Liv Jaeckel was appointed holder of this Chair.

The establishment of the Chair of Law of Economic Regulation reflects the increasing importance of regulation knowledge for business practice. Issues such as standardization of markets, economic governance and economic management through public regulation as well as compliance-related questions are becoming ever more significant in day to day business and offer new opportunities and risks. It is the aim of the Chair of Law of Economic Regulation to analyse and accompany this development and its national, European and international manifestations from a jurisprudential perspective. Due to the interconnection of the Chair with the Center for Health Care Management and Regulation research will also actively pursue issues relating to the regulation of the medical and healthcare market.
