Kurt Lipstein

Oxford University Press

This chapter chronicles the life of Kurt Lipstein as an émigré legal scholar in England, where he moved from Germany. Lipstein was not totally unprepared to emigrate to England because he knew Roman law and paprology, and took up a course each on French law and English law. Armed inter alia with a letter of introduction to a Fellow of Trinity College at Cambridge University, he left to investigate the possibilities for starting afresh in England, backed up by his special knowledge of Roman law and his growing interest in private international law. He was accepted as a research student at Trinity College. This chapter also looks at Lipstein's permanent settlement in England, his stint as professor at Trinity College, and his legal practice and academic travel.
