Hanjo Hamann conducts research at the interface between law and economics, thereby making the analysis of law using economic methods an important topic in Germany – something that has been discussed in the USA for some time. Hamann has also distinguished himself in the fields of empiricism and legal research with numerous publications. His dissertation takes an evidence-based approach to law and has attracted considerable interest, both nationally and internationally. In it, Hamann discusses the foundations of quantitative-empirical research in jurisprudence, combining critical reflection on empirical approaches with legal-normative approaches. He has also made key contributions to behavioural law and economics, as well as legal corpus linguistics. At the beginning of April, Hamann accepted an appointment at the EBS University of Business and Law in Wiesbaden.
