Overview

As a result of the Nazi-regime, German law faculties lost just over a quarter of their members. Recent years have seen a growing body of literature on the contribution of scientists, historians, and literary and artistic figures who were forced to leave Germany and Austria after Hitler came to power. This volume is the first study of the important contribution of refugee and é migré legal scholars to the development of English law. It considers nineteen legal scholars originally trained in Germany or Austria, (fifteen of whom were expelled from their posts in the 1930s) and who made their home in England, and assesses their contribution to scholarship in a very different legal system from that which they left.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Jack Beatson and Reinhard Zimmerman have collected (and contributed) papers rich in the texture of the experience of the judges, lawyers, and law professors driven into exile by the National Socialist regime in Germany and the impact this had in terms of the host's legal and academic culture. This book is important for those interested in the dialectic of discourse between alien legal systems." —Law and History Review

"In a nicely organized volume, Justice Sir Jack Beatson and Professor Reinhard Zimmerman have edited two dozen essaysabout the most important German-speaking legal scholars and lawyers who fled Nazi Germany [their] effort is one of reparation, respect, and affection for its subjects." —Richard M. Buxbaum, American Journal of Comparative Law
