FA Mann Project Workshop

Date: 19 November 2021

Time: 10.00 - 13.00 UK time

Venue: Online

Event Details

 BIICL is working with the Humboldt University Berlin in a project on the renown lawyer Frederick Alexander ("Francis") Mann (1907-1991).

The project uses the extensive corpus of his documents, bequeathed to the Humboldt University, to explore how Mann influenced the development of English, German, European, and international law right up to the present day. Mann counts as one of the most significant jurists of the 20th century. A deeper engagement with the life and work of this "frontier jurist", who crossed borders between legal disciplines as well as jurisdictions, promises important impulses for current legal research, particularly in the law of money, conflict of laws, international law, arbitration law, and studies of the transnationalisation of law. It is also significant for the biographical study of German Jewish jurists.
