About Tormod Otter Johansen

I am a doctoral candidate in public law, pursuing a thesis with the working title "The legality principle and public sector activity, especially regarding actions that are not exercise of public authority". It consists of a critique of the general theorization of administrative law in the Swedish context and the attempt at a constructive and realist approach for future scholarship on general administrative law.

My research interests are in public law, especially the relationship between constitutional issues and administrative issues. I also have a legal theoretical interest, both in the public law field and in general legal philosophy. I have published in these fields, and also in the field of procedural law.

I am teaching constitutional law and administrative law at bachelor and master level at the law programme in Gothenburg.

My main supervisor is Thomas Erhag, associate professor University of Gothenburg. My co-supervisor is Håkan Gustafsson, professor at Karlstad University.
