Georg Schwarzenberger described himself as ‘European; born and bred in Germany, with British nationality and British loyalties’. His life was indeed characterised by the crossing of borders: he distanced himself from his Jewish religion and bourgeois family, emigrated from Germany to England, and, finally, changed his scholarly area from international law to international relations. Schwarzenberger was born in Heilbronn, Württemberg, in 1908. For his legal studies, Schwarzenberger chose the University of Heidelberg, considered the most liberal university in Germany. This chapter chronicles the life of Schwarzenberger as an émigré legal scholar in England, his settlement in London, his approach to international law, his promotion of international law, his work on international law and power politics, and his influence on English law.

Keywords:   Georg Schwarzenberger, Germany, émigré legal scholars, international law, international relations, English law, power politics
