Member of:

    Alexandra Horváthová is an Assistant Professor of Corporate law at CEVIA – Centre for Enterprise Liability. She holds an an S.J.D. in International Business Law from the Central European University (2015), an LL.M in International Business Law from the Central European University (2011) and a Master’s degree in law from Comenius University (2010). She has been a visiting researcher at the Cornell Law School (2014) and the Oxford Law School (2013). Before joining CEVIA, she was a research fellow at the Center for Integrity in Business and Government at the CEU Business School (2012-2015) and she worked for CMS Cameron McKenna in Budapest with their litigation and arbitration team, after which she joined the anti-corruption consultation firm, CNS Risk. Alexandra was called into the bar in Slovakia.

    Alexandra’s main areas of research are corporate law, capital market law, corporate social responsibility, anti-corruption and contract law. On these topics she has published articles in numerous European as well as US law journals and reviews. She actively participated on numerous conferences in Europe and in Canada.

    Alexandra’s current work focuses on two topics. First is the development of corporate law in light of technology and the second is the interplay between corporate social responsibility and contract law. Within the fist area she analyzes novel methods used to achieve legal obligations of corporations while assessing the possible risks and technological as well as human limitations. Within the area of CSR,  Alexandra analyzes how and in which forms a contract, as a legal tool, can contribute to the further development, application and enforcement of CSR in the business world. Despite numerous governmental and non-governmental initiatives, corporations remain extremely agile at finding legally questionable ways to circumvent regulatory control and international guidelines, in that way leaving the notion of CSR highly ambiguous in legal scholarship.
