While common law is developed by the courts and judges may well be the prime authorities for the development of law, and while French private law is said to be the origin of the idea of modern codification and grand legislatures, German private law can well be seen as the law where the influence of academia is paramount. It is perhaps fair to say that no other code is as strongly influenced by scholars as the German Civil Code of 1900. Furthermore, in both the past and the present, courts and scholars in Germany are in constant dialogue about the application and interpretation of German and also EU law. Arguably, this is also one of the reasons why German academia plays such a promi-nent - some may say excessively dominant - role in the European private law discourse and development. As a result it seems necessary, indeed vital, to shed more light on professors who were highly influential in the development of German private law in the 20th century.They fostered such concepts and ideas as the birth of modern market and institutional regulation, genuine interna-tionalisation, in particular through comparative law, and Europeanisation of private law, 'social' areas of the law, particularly labour and consumer law and fundamental rights' protection be-tween private parties, and equally the law of competition and enterprise. This book compiles and puts into perspective portraits of 36 professors of private law from Germany, Austria and Switzerland who completed the core of their academic oeuvre in the 20th century. The individual portraits of the life and work of each professor are written by one of their former 'Schuler' and taken together show the thread of the intellectual history of legal thinking in 20th century German private law
