Philipp Schlueter

Resident Fellow

Philipp Schlueter is an LL.M. candidate at Yale Law School and resident fellow at the Information Society Project. His research is primarily devoted to private law and its theory, and civil procedure, bankruptcy and comparative law. He is particularly interested in how challenges of the digital economy and traditional concepts of private law can be reconciled. In his Ph.D. thesis, published in 2021, Philipp examined the theory of unjust enrichment with a particular focus on the unwinding of contracts and the intersections between contracts, torts and property. 

Philipp holds a Ph.D. from the University of Freiburg (2020) and passed both German state exams (First: Freiburg, 2017; Second: Hamburg, 2022). Before coming to Yale, Philipp worked as a research associate for the Max-Planck-Institute for Comparative and Private International 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.
