Abstract

Deutsche Zusammenfassung: Indem er charakteristische Aspekte der akademischen Karriere in den Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika hervorhebt, versucht der vorliegende Beitrag einen Kontrast zu akademischen Karrierewegen für Juristen in den Ländern zu bieten, mit denen sich das Symposium am Hamburger Max-Planck-Institut im Juni 2019 befasst hat. Diese Länder sind Deutschland und Österreich, Frankreich, Italien, England und Schottland sowie Japan. Auch hier finden wir erhebliche Unterschiede, die die jeweiligen Rechtskulturen prägen und von ihnen geprägt werden.

English Abstract: By highlighting characteristic aspects of an academic career in the United States, the present contribution attempts to provide an interesting contrast to the career paths into legal academia available in the countries on which the symposium, held in the Hamburg Max Planck Institute in June 2019, focuses. The countries considered in the symposium are Germany and Austria, France, Italy, England and Scotland, and Japan. Here, too, we find considerable differences which both shape different legal cultures and are shaped by them.
