CrimSL welcomes Morten Boe as a Visiting Junior Fellow from September 1 to October 31, 2023. He will be supervised at CrimSL by Professor Markus Dubber.

Morten is a doctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Crime, Security and Law in Freiburg, Germany. 

He studied Law at Humboldt University Berlin and Queen Mary University of London, with a specialization in International and German criminal law. After the First State Exam in Germany (2019), he worked shortly as a research assistant in a law firm focusing on corporate criminal law before obtaining a Masters’ Degree in International and Transnational Criminal Law from the University of Amsterdam in 2020. His PhD dissertation is supervised by Prof. Dr. Tatjana Hörnle, Managing Director of the Max Planck Institute for the Study for Crime, Security and Law, and focusses on the concept "Schuld" (guilt) and its significance for (German) criminal law.

While at U of T, Morten plans to attend CrimSL events as much as possible, and looks forward to connecting with other scholars here. He says:

My fellowship at CrimSL is a wonderful opportunity to broaden my academic horizon and improve my dissertation. I am looking forward to meeting inspiring scholars and to learning about the research conducted at the centre.
