Herwig C. H. Hofmann is Professor of European and Transnational Public Law at the University of Luxembourg.

Professor Hofmann is member of numerous international and national scientific organisations, is member of the scientific boards of several legal journals. He was the University of Luxembourg’s first Professor of Law (2004) where he was also founder of the Centre for European Law (2006) and the Robert Schuman Institute for European Affairs (2015). Prior to joining the University of Luxembourg, he was full time lecturer in law at Trinity College Law School in Dublin, Ireland. Professor Hofmann has held visiting positions at institutions in Europe (including at Sciences Po in Paris and the EUI in Florence), in the US (including at Columbia Law School in New York and the University of San Francisco Law School) and in Asia (at Chuo University in Tokyo). Hofmann is a graduate of the Universities of Oxford (M.Jur) and Hamburg (Dr.iur).

Professor Hofmann has conducted numerous projects and is the author and co-author of books in the field of EU public such as ‘Administrative Law and Politics of the European Union’ (1st ed. Oxford 2011, 2nd revised ed. Oxford 2019) and ‘Principles of EU Public Law and Administration’ (Oxford, 2019). He has also published as books and articles on structural developments within the EU including The External Dimension of EU Agencies (Elgar, 2018) and EU Administrative Governance (Elgar 2006).

In the field of EU economic and regulatory law, Hofmann is publishing a volume ‘Specialised Matters of EU Administrative Law’ (Oxford 2018). Multi-annual research projects on EU constitutional law and regulatory changes have led to the publications of the ‘The Metamorphosis of the European Economic Constitution’ and a book ‘State Aid Law of the European Union’ (Oxford 2016) looking at the influence of State Aid law on the development of EU public law principles.

Professor Hofmann has gained a reputation as fundamental rights litigator before the CJEU mainly through his work on the Schrems cases developing notions of privacy and data protection as well as defining the conditions of the right to an effective judicial remedy. His work in the area of fundamental rights focusses predominantly on information rights and procedural rights. Hofmann is also the author of commentaries on Article 47 of the Charter of the European Union as well as a study on non-judicial dispute settlement in the EU ‘Accountability in the EU – The Role of the European Ombudsman’ (Elgar 2017).

Hofmann is one of the coordinators of the Research Network on European Administrative Law (ReNEUAL) and one of the co-authors and co-editors of the ‘ReNEUAL Model Rules on EU Administrative Procedure’, a result of a large collaborative undertaking of researchers across Europe to develop workable standards of procedural justice for implementation of EU law. The model rules are translated and published in seven languages (EN, ES, DE, FR, IT, PL, RO), last by OUP in Oxford 2017. This work has been supported by a long-standing interest in comparative public law, which will result in the publication of the ‘Oxford Handbook of Comparative Administrative Law Research’ (Oxford 2020) and was subject to the collections ‘Comparative Perspectives on Administrative Procedure’ (Durham 2017) and ‘Transatlantic Perspectives on Administrative Law’ (Brussels 2011).

In matters of legislation, Hofmann has been active advising national governments (inter alia the French Prime Minister’s legislative service on the 2015 ‘Code des relations entre le public et les administrations’). Professor Hofmann was also commissioned to support drafting of the European Parliament’s the first ever fully formulated own legislative proposal (the 2016 proposal for a Regulation ‘on the Administrative Procedure of the European Union's institutions, bodies, offices and agencies’). More recently, professor Hofmann has also advised the Luxembourg government and the EP on various questions related to ‘Brexit’.
