This chapter reviews the work and influence of Kurt Lipstein, starting with his major work on Roman law. Lipstein's early interest in Roman law is not without its enduring significance. It is more than sixty years since he first began supervising Roman law in Cambridge University, England, and he is still introducing undergraduates to that subject. In Cambridge at least, the study of the law of Rome remains a vital (and compulsory) part of the Law Tripos. Lipstein knows better than most the importance of Roman law in the formation of the understanding and mind of scholarly lawyers. Lipstein's work on the Roman law of suretyship and private international law, the latter of which covers unjustified enrichment and the conflict of laws, is also discussed, along with his views on the rules of international tribunals regarding private international law, and his foray into the law of intellectual property.

Keywords:   Kurt Lipstein, Roman law, suretyship, private international law, unjustified enrichment, conflict of laws, international tribunals, intellectual property
