Mina Hosseini (PhD, LLM, LLB)


I am  Mina Hosseini, currently serving as a Marie SkÅ‚odowska–Curie postdoctoral fellow at UCD Sutherland School of Law in Dublin, Ireland. My academic journey includes earning a PhD in Competition Law from Beheshti University in Tehran, Iran. Before my role at UCD, I held the position of assistant professor at Tehran University of Science and Culture (USC) from 2018 to 2022. During this period, I taught courses in Contract Law, Competition Law, and Tort Law. Also, I took on the responsibilities of being the academic manager for the USC Journal of Modern Technology Law.
I have been a member of the Iranian Central Bar since 2008, and from 2014 to 2018, I dedicated my efforts as a researcher at the Niroo Research Institute, focusing on various projects related to the electricity market. In 2019, I received the National Student Book of the Year Award in the Law category for my monograph on Comparative Competition Law.
My interdisciplinary research interests include competition law and policy, health law, and pharmaceutical law. Under the supervision of Professor Imelda Maher, I am conducting my project COMPHACRISIS. This study explores the enforcement of EU competition law and policies in the pharmaceutical sector across normal, crisis, and post-crisis situations, drawing valuable lessons from the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.
I actively participate in interdisciplinary and comparative legal research. I have published my work in leading academic journals such as Competition Policy International, Irish Studies in International Affairs, Journal of Medical Ethics and History of Medicine, Journal of Research on History of Medicine and Public Governance, Administration and Finances Law Review. I've given presentations on a variety of topics at international conferences such as the Asian Bioethics Conference, the UACES, the ASCOLA, and the SLS. Additionally, I was invited as a guest lecturer at several workshops including three Grant Writing Workshops organised by UCD Research, the Universidad de Málaga Workshop on Competition Law in Tourism, the Société de Législation Comparée Comparative Competition Law workshop in Paris and the National Competition Council’s workshop on EU Competition Law and Policy in Tehran.
