I studied law, philosophy, and Latin at the Universities of Cologne, Hamburg, and Edinburgh; obtained my doctorate from the University of Bonn with a thesis on European competition law, and my habilitation from the University of Munich with a thesis on comparative Anglo-German personal property law. After a stint in practice, I held posts in Oxford (1997-2003); Max-Planck-Institute for Intellectual Property and Competition Law, Munich (2003-2008); and York (2008-2013).
- This chapter analyses the opinions of Advocate General Jacobs in the cases Leclerc-Siplec, de Agostini, and Gourmet, decided by the Court of Justice of the European Union.
