About Kristin Y. Albrecht
I have been a PostDoc at the University of Salzburg at the Department of International Law, European Law and Philosophy of Law of the Faculty of Law since May 2021. Prior to that, I worked at the Universities of Graz, Salzburg and Heidelberg and did research stays at Queen Mary University of London and King’s College London.
Prior to my current position at the University of Salzburg, I was a PostDoc at the Institute for Public Law (Univ.-Prof. Dr. Christoph Bezemek, B.A., LL.M. (Yale)) at the University of Graz and a Senior Scientist at the University of Salzburg. My dissertation on “Fictions in Law” was published in October 2020 in the series Studien zur Rechtsphilosophie und Rechtstheorie (editors: Ralf Dreier, Robert Alexy, Carsten Bäcker and Martin Borowski). This work was supervised by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Stephan Kirste and was written during my employment as a university lecturer in his research group from 2015-2019. Before that, I worked at the University of Heidelberg as a research assistant to Univ.-Prof. Dr. Ute Mager.

Current Research Focuses
My research currently focuses on the philosophy of law (especially fictions), the foundations of public law and comparative law.
