Affiliated Fellow

Philipp Schlueter is a lecturer (Akademischer Rat a.Z.) at the University of Freiburg. His research is primarily devoted to private law and its theory, civil procedure, bankruptcy and comparative law. He is particularly interested in how the challenges of the digital economy and traditional concepts of private law can be reconciled. In his PhD thesis, published in 2021, Philipp examined the theory of unjust enrichment, focusing on the unwinding of contracts and the intersections between contracts, torts and property. 

Previously, he worked as a Research Associate for the Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law in Hamburg. Further positions include the Institute for German and Comparative Civil Procedure, Department 1 at the University of Freiburg, the German Federal Chancellory in Berlin and UNIDROIT in Rome. Philipp holds a PhD in law from the University of Freiburg (2020), an LL.M. from Yale Law School (2023) and passed both German state exams (First: Freiburg, 2017; Second: Hamburg, 2022).
