Geneviève Helleringer (JD Columbia, Doct Sorbonne, MSc Essec Business School) is a fellow of the Institute of European and Comparative Law (IECL) and of St Catherine's college. She is associate professor at Essec Business School.
Dr Helleringer has worked over the three precedent years on comparative contract law, pluralism and European legal culture, contributing to the emerging academic study of European private law. This work has involved a study of the emerging common European contract culture and has provided evidence that contract clauses have a potential to serve as lingua communis and to improve the way commercial and consumer contracts work.
Genevieve has more recenlty engaged in an empirical study of private regulation of disputes. Her main focus is on the conflict of interests deriving thereof, in commercial arbitration as well as corporate and financial market disputes. In this endeavour, she increasingly relies on findings from behavioural studies.
