About me

Alperen A. Gözlügöl is an Assistant Professor of Law at the LSE Law School. His expertise and interests include corporate law and governance, capital markets law and financial regulation. His research and teaching outlook is comparative and interdisciplinary. His articles have been published in the leading European journals and US law reviews.

Before joining the LSE in September 2023, Alperen was a postdoctoral researcher at the Leibniz Institute for Financial Research SAFE and a junior fellow and an affiliated researcher at the Center for Advanced Studies on the Foundations of Law and Finance, Goethe University Frankfurt. He obtained his PhD (summa cum laude) from the University of Hamburg with a cumulative thesis on the law and economics of related party transactions and his LL.M. from the University of Cambridge (first-class honours with a prize-winning thesis). Previously, he read law at Bilkent University, Ankara.

Research interests

Alperen’s research interests are primarily in corporate law and governance, law and finance, financial regulation, and capital markets regulation. He aims to produce internationally relevant, theoretically or empirically impactful projects that can significantly contribute to the literature. He is interested in producing new theories or empirics, analysing established concepts in new contexts, understanding current or new phenomena, and identifying and addressing gaps and tensions in collective (regulatory, scholarly, societal) responses to crucial problems. Generally, he is interested in how the law develops, how it should develop and how it fails or succeeds in achieving its goals.

Currently, he is working on projects on whether and how law and finance can contribute to the sustainability goals of the international community and address risks related to the changing planetary ecosystem, on the current developments in the capital markets of leading jurisdictions and rising regulatory and non-regulatory questions, and on the developments in corporate governance. In multidisciplinary teams, he also works on empirical projects related to fundamentally important corporate law issues and sustainable law and finance.
