About me

Christine Storr (previously Kirchberger) is a lecturer and doctoral candidate in law & informatics at the Department of Law, Stockholm University. She has been working at the department since 2001 after a law degree from Austria and an LL.M. in Law and Information Technology from Stockholm University. 

Within IT law she specialises in privacy, e-commerce, marketing law and freedom of expression and is the editor and main author of Cyber Law in Sweden (part of Kluwer’s International Encyclopaedia for Cyber Law).


Christine teaches among others in the undergraduate courses Legal Information Retrieval and Legal Sources as part of Introduction to Law (Juridisk introduktionskurs), European Law and Family Law (Civilrätt C); as well as media law and Introduction to administrative law for public employees. Christine also teaches Marknadsjuridiska perspektiv (MJP) at the Stockholm Business School.


Christine's doctoral project deals with legal information retrieval, the concept of legal information within the framework of the doctrine of legal sources and the information-seeking behaviour of lawyers.

A discrepancy between solutions for legal information retrieval and the idea of a generally accepted authoritative doctrine of legal sources can be noticed. Many of the challenges lie outside the legal area and concern the ambiguity of language, changes in search algorithms and information anxiety in most users nowadays.
