Mark Ørberg

Mark Ørberg holds a PhD degree from CBS (2022) and is assistant professor at CBS LAW where he teaches corporate law, company law, and administrative law. His current research interests include foundation law, philanthropy law, constitutional law and the intersection between public law and private law, statutory interpretation, and comparative law. Currently, he is involved in interdisciplinary research with economists and political scientists where focus is on providing a better understanding of the Danish legal framework on foundations as well as on improving the existing framework conditions. 

In 2022, he published his PhD dissertation »Fondsretten og den levende vedtægt« (English: Foundation Law and The Living Charter) in Djøf Forlag. The dissertation contains a legal analysis of Danish foundation law concerning the purposes and objectives of Danish foundations covered by the Danish foundation acts. In the dissertation, he considers which interpretive methods--or »tools«--one should or must apply whilst reading the purpose expressed in a foundation’s charter (by-laws). Nextly, he considers settled/prevailing law in terms of the Danish purpose amendment threshold (formålsændringskriteriet) and identifies the factors that are permissible or mandatory in the application of the purpose amendment threshold.The dissertation draws inspiration from Norwegian, Swedish and Finnish foundation law, and it includes a vast amount of cases from the Danish authorities issuing administrative decisions on foundation law.
