About Katalin Capannini-Kelemen

Katalin Capannini-Kelemen is Associate Professor in Law. Prior to her appointment at Örebro University in 2010, she graduated in Law from Loránd Eötvös University in Budapest, Hungary, with a master thesis in comparative criminal law (2003) and completed her PhD in Comparative Law at the Università degli Studi di Firenze in Italy, with a doctoral dissertation on the decision-making process of East-Central European constitutional courts (2008). In Florence, she also taught European Union Law at the New York University in Florence and worked at the local law firm Studio Legale Pastorelli.

Katalin's primary area of research is comparative law, in particular comparative constitutional law, judicial reasoning, judicial dissent, and East-Central European legal systems. Her current focus is constitutional reasoning and automation of judicial decision-making. Her interdisciplinary research initiation on the quality of reasoning in automated judicial decisions is being sponsored by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond.

From September 2021 she heads the research project "Nordic exceptionalism? Mapping constitutional reasoning in Nordic countries" (Nordic CONREASON Project) sponsored by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond with 5.8 milion SEK. The project involves five Nordic constitutional scholars, a statistician and an international advisory board.

Katalin teaches comparative law, comparative constitutional law and EU constitutional law.
