Gunnar Groh (LL.M. ’11), who is studying corporate law at NYU School of Law, recently co-authored a German casebook, Faelle zum Internationalen Gesellschaftsrecht (Cases on International Corporate Law). The book’s cases deal with topics including conflict of laws of companies and of capital markets and particular forms of corporations springing directly from European regulations, as well as cross-border insolvency.
Groh first taught the cases in 2008 as a research assistant at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. With his colleague, Raffael Nath, Groh developed the casebook from that material. Students reading the book learn how conflict of laws, national company law, European law, securities law, and insolvency law interact. During the past decade, company law and related conflict of laws have become hot topics in Germany, which altered its conflict rule to facilitate corporate cross-border mobility.
Apart from the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and NYU Law, Groh has studied law at the Pantheon-Assas Paris II University, where he majored in private law and international law, and the University of Mannheim, where he is earning a Ph.D.
