Visiting Professor of Law (Spring 2017)

Prof. Dr. Bertram Lomfeld, born in 1975, is Professor of Private Law, Philosophy & Sociology of Law at Freie Universit√§t Berlin. His work focuses on private and economic law theory (contract, property, bankruptcy) and the philosophical, sociological and economic foundations of law in general. 

Lomfeld is a senior editor of the journal POLAR (for politics, philosophy and art) and founded the global network Private Law Theory, which emphasizes the constitutive social and political function of private law. He has advised the German federal department of economic cooperation BMZ (state insolvency, World Bank sustainability standards) and the Green Bundestag (digital democracy, copyright). 

His last books include The Reasons of Contract: A Deliberative Theory of Contract Laws (Mohr 2015) and Reshaping Markets: Economic Governance, the Global Financial Crisis and Liberal Utopia (CUP 2016). Beyond theory, he loves to sculpt, his children, and the tango.
