Clive M. Schmitthoff was born on March 24, 1903 to Anna Schmitthoff and Hermann Schmitthoff. He received a classical education at the Friedrichsgymnasium, one of the oldest grammar schools in Berlin, Germany. After passing his final examination in 1921, he studied law at the Universities of Berlin and Freiburg im Breisgau. He was awarded the degree of doctor iuris utriusque in 1927. The subject of his thesis was company law: the problem of shares controlled by the management of public limited companies. In 1929, Schmitthoff's first published work appeared and he passed the examination to become a fully qualified German lawyer. The political situation in Germany, as he assessed it at the time, made it impossible for him to pursue an academic career as he would have liked. This chapter chronicles the life of Schmitthoff, his publications in the fields of company law, commercial arbitration, commercial law, trade law, and conflict of laws, as well as his late works.
