Prof. Hattenhauer is particularly concerned with the historical and European references of civil law. His areas of interest are the history of civil law dogma, legal humanism, and the history of German legislation in the 19th century.

His publications include essays, encyclopedia articles, and edited anthologies on legal history and current civil law, as well as the monographs “Einseitige private Rechtsgestaltung. Geschichte und Dogma”, “Wahl und Krönung Franz II. AD 1792. Das Heilige Reich krönt seinen letzten Kaiser – Das Tagebuch des Reichsquartiermeisters Hieronymus Gottfried von Müller und Anlagen” and “Schuldenregulierung nach dem Westfälischen Frieden. Der sog. § de indaganda und seiner Umsetzung im Jüngsten Reichsabschied (AD 1648 und 1654).” A database of the materials of the Civil Code for the Kingdom of Saxony of 1863/65 is nearing completion.
