Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Leonie Reins is Assistant Professor at the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, and Society (TILT), Tilburg Law School (the Netherlands).


Leonie?s research focuses on the intersections of energy and environmental law. She is particularly interested in the regulation of new technologies that are capable of mitigating, or providing means of adaptation to, global problems such as climate change and the associated risks and uncertainty that manifest themselves at the local level. Within this field, she focuses on the regulation of new technologies and developments such as CCS, nanotechnology, shale gas and the emergence of energy prosumers. Regulatory approaches towards risk and risk management also play an important role in her work. Leonie's work further addresses the way in which regulators balance environmental protection and climate change mitigation and adaptation with other objectives, such as energy supply security, and energy efficiency.

 

 

 

Career

In 2017, Leonie joined Tilburg Law School as an Assistant Professor at the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology and Society (TILT).

Prior to joining TILT, she worked as a PhD Candidate and then as a Post-Doctoral Researcher at KU Leuven (Belgium). Her research project on ?the coherent regulation on energy and environment ? using shale gas as a case study?, was financed by the Research Foundation ? Flanders (FWO). In addition Leonie worked as Legal Advisor at a Brussels-based environmental law and policy consultancy, where she was involved in projects relating to environmental, energy and climate change law and policy. Leonie holds and LL.M. in International, European and Comparative Energy and Environmental Law. She has been part of, and managed, several complex multi-country legal and policy studies for the European Institutions. These projects dealt with a range of topics, such as the precautionary principle and risk management, unconventional gas, environmental claims, deforestation, and energy supply security. Leonie has also managed several conformity assessment projects. Earlier in her career, Leonie served as a legal intern at the Environmental Law Center of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in Bonn, Germany and was a research assistant at the department of Civil Law, Trade Law and Insurance Law at Leuphana University in Lüneburg where also completed her LL.B. 

Leonie's work has been published in leading journals, such as Environmental Liability and the Review of European, Comparative & International Environmental Law. Her 2017 monograph on the regulation of shale gas was published with Edward Elgar.
