About Jörn Jacobsen

My main research interests are criminal law and legal theory. Two early studies made it clear to me that a renewed theoretical foundation for Norwegian criminal law was needed. In my PhD project, I investigated the basic principles of criminal law in the democratic Rechtsstaat.  I have later developed this approach in a number of projects and studies on criminal law from legal theoretical, methodological and legal historical perspectives. The aim of my recent studies is developing and applying a system for the criteria for criminal responsibility in contemporary Norwegian criminal law.

In order to facilitate for Norwegian and Nordic criminal law to be part of the contemporary internationalisation of criminal law, my colleague and I founded in 2013 the electronic open access journal Bergen Journal of Criminal Law and Criminal Justice https://boap.uib.no/index.php/BJCLCJ. I am currently co-editor in chief.

My teaching concerns mainly criminal law. I am responsible for the course on criminal law at the Faculty of Law, University of Bergen. I also supervise master students and currently three PhD students in Bergen and in Gothenburg. I am also in charge of the PhD-course Perspectives on Law and Legal Science (Faculty of Law, University of Bergen).
