iinek @ law and informatics

I am Christine Storr, previously Christine Kirchberger (hence iinek) and I am a lecturer and doctoral candidate in  law & informatics at the Department of Law, Stockholm University. I have been working at the University since 2001 after completing my Master Degree in Law and Information Technology. 


law & IT pedagogy

My research focuses on the concept of legal information within the framework of the doctrine of legal sources and the information-seeking behaviour of lawyers. Since 2016 I have been the coordinator for IT pedagogy at the Department of Law where I facilitate teachers’ use of technology. I created recipes for teaching during my time as a pedagogical ambassador in 2021 and have also written help guides for teachers on how to use the available learning platforms at Stockholm University (available at smartare.at/su).
