Social Security Law and Private Insurance Law

Foto Marc Hürzeler

Professor Dr Marc Hürzeler focuses on the field of social security law and its ties to liability and private insurance law. This field crosses over into a number of other areas of both public and private law. The specialism has evolved from circumstances in Swiss law that result in cases of personal injury triggering a number of different benefits claims, each of which has to be allocated to an overall system. Such cases result in a number of complicated and sensitive questions related to coordination.

The chair also focuses on research in the area of occupational pension schemes (the second pillar of Swiss social security).
