I am Professor of Intellectual Property Law at Hokkaido University Graduate School of Law and Member of the Research Institute for Information Law and Policy at Hokkaido University. My research interests focus on studying the impact of intellectual property protection on cultural production and development of new information and communication technologies. In my research, I employ interdisciplinary, empirical and comparative analysis.

 

I teach international and comparative intellectual property law, law and economics, and comparative contract and tort law courses. I have previously taught at Kyushu University and Nagoya University in Japan and at National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan.

I have extensively published on copyright and patent law in English, Japanese and Slovak. I am a co-author of the commentary on Slovak Copyright Law (received the 3rd prize in the 2018 Best Law Book Award) with Zuzana Adamova, published by C. H. Beck. My scholarly articles appeared in law reviews, such as Law Quarterly Review and Copyright Law Journal.

 

Before entering academia, I practiced law in a leading law firm in Slovakia (Cechova & Partners) and worked at the Institute for Approximation of Law at the Slovak Government Office. I obtained my law degrees at the University of Oxford (MJur), Comenius University (LL.M.), Trnava University (Dr. jur.) and Kyushu University (LL.D.).

Law & Economics I

Law & Economics II

This course introduces participants to law-and-economic analysis. It presents core methodologies used by law-and-economics studies and applies them to main areas of private law, such as laws of property, contract and torts.

This course introduces participants to public choice theory and its implications for legal studies. It presents the public choice theory’s insights on conducts of main stakeholders, such as members of legislatures, judges, public defenders, bureaucrats and interest groups. It applies those insights to branches of laws, such main constitutional, environmental and family law.
