Stefan Vogenauer appointed as co-editor of Comparative Legal History Series
Professor Vogenauer was recently invited to replace the late Knut Wolfgang Nörr, formerly External Scientific Member of the Institute, as a co-editor of the Comparative Studies in Continental and Anglo-American Legal History. He joins Professors Richard H. Helmholz (University of Chicago), Mathias Reimann (University of Chicago) and Reinhard Zimmermann (Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law, Hamburg). The series is published by Duncker & Humblot in Berlin.
It was jointly established by Nörr and the Institute’s Founding Director, Helmut Coing, in 1981, with the avowed aim of promoting comparative legal history and highlighting the connections between the two major ‘legal families’ of the ‘civil law’ and the common law throughout their respective histories. The first volume appeared in 1985, and the series has sparked a range of widely acclaimed monographs and edited collections ever since. Volume 33, Limitation and Prescription: A Comparative Legal History, co-edited by Harry Dondorp (VU Amsterdam), David Ibbetson (University of Cambridge) and Eltjo JH Schrage (University of Amsterdam), has just been published.
