Personal profile

Research interests

Dave De ruysscher (1978) (MA, LLM, PhD) is legal historian and lawyer. He researches in themes regarding the history of commercial and private law until the present day. The focus of his research has thus far been on early modern commercial law, in particular on bills of exchange, partnership (legal personhood) and bankruptcy, and also on contract law of that period (assignment, legal capacity to contract). He has written three substantial books, and several peer-reviewed articles and book chapters in English, French and Dutch. In 2016, he was awarded an ERC Starting Grant, on the theme of collateral rights and insolvency (see www.clls.eu).
