About me

Jessika van der Sluijs is a professor of private law. The main research field is insurance law. The doctoral thesis "Direct action in liability insurance" (2006) dealt with the victim's rights towards the liability insurer. The monagraph "Professional Liability Insurance" (2013) explored the mandatory liability insurance for solicitors, accountants, real estate brokers and insurance intermediaries and the legal context of those insurances. The latest project, which was finished in 2019 explored the impact of so called "soft law" (i.e. guidelines, recommendations, disciplinary decisions, and codes of conduct) on Swedish insurance law. Since 2010 Jessika van der Sluijs has been a member of the Stockholm Centre for Commercial Law (SCCL).

Teaching areas are law of obligations, insurance law, tort law, contract law, and a little jurisprucence. In 2013 Jessika van der Sluijs was awarded with the Stockholm University teaching award.

During 2018-2020 she is the Dean of the Law Faculty, Stockholm University.
