After the habilitation committee decided to accept the written habilitation thesis of Dr Dimitrios Parashu, MLE (pictured right) on the 8th of March 2023, he gave an academic lecture on the 26th of April on the topic of "The treatment of competition law by the EU member states in a comparative assessment of private law" and held a teaching rehearsal on the 11th of May on the topic of "In-depth study of the EU free movement of goods".

On 27th of June 2023, Dean Prof. Dr Jan Eichelberger, LL.M.oec. (on the left) ceremoniously presented Dr Parashu with his habilitation certificate. Dr Parashu was granted authorisation to teach the subjects of European Law, Business Law and Comparative Law. The habilitation procedure has thus been successfully completed.

In his habilitation, Dr Parashu dealt with the topic "Rechtsvereinheitlichung durch Verfahrensgestaltung im europäischen Wettbewerbsrecht – Das (insbes. marktverhaltensrechtliche) Harmonisierungspotential von Anhörungsbeauftragten in bestimmten Wettbewerbsverfahren".

"Due to his international education, Dr Parashu was more suited to this habilitation project than almost anyone else. As part of his research work, he has also built up an impressive international network over the years, from which the entire faculty has benefited and continues to benefit enormously through the visits of countless renowned guest lecturers. The faculty has every reason to be proud to be able to habilitate such a committed researcher," congratulated the Dean.


Dr Parashu studied law at the Faculty of Law of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece from 2000 to 2005. Between 2005 and 2007, he completed supplementary studies at the Faculty of Law of the Leibniz University of Hanover as part of the Master's programme in European Legal Practice.

After passing the 2nd Greek state examination in 2007, he went on to study for a doctorate in Hanover, which he successfully completed in 2011.

After working as a research assistant in Hanover and as a research assistant at the Bucerius Law School in Hamburg, Dr Parashu returned to the Faculty of Law in Hanover in 2013. Since then, he has worked as a research assistant at the Chair of Public Law, in particular European Law (Prof. Dr Claas Friedrich Germelmann, LL.M.) and as a lecturer at the Chair of German, European and International Civil and Commercial Law (Prof. Dr Dr Dr h.c. Bernd H. Oppermann, Prof. h.c. (UMCS), LL.M. (UCLA)). He has been a habilitation candidate at our faculty since 2017. Dr Parashu now works here as a private lecturer.
