Alexandra Andhov (Horváthová) is an Assistant Professor of Corporate law at CEVIA – Centre for Enterprise Liability. In 2019 she has been a Fulbright Scholar at Cornell Law School in the United States. Alexandra’s main areas of research are corporate law, capital market law, corporate social responsibility 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, US and Canada.

Alexandra’s current work focuses on two topics. First is the development of corporate law and capital market law in light of technology and the second is the interplay between corporate social responsibility and contract law. Within the fist area she analyzes regulatory aspects of FinTech and effects of nove ltechnology on the division of power and control among diverse groups of stakeholders. Within the area of CSR,  Alexandra analyzes how and in which forms of legal tools 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. 

Alexandra holds 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 in numerous institutions and research centers, including the University of Turin (2017), the Cornell Law School (2013-14) 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. In 2015 she  joined a consultation firm, CNS Risk. Alexandra was called into the bar in Slovakia.
