There was an important distinction among émigré legal scholars in England (very few came to Scotland in the first place), between those scholars who were already well established in their academic careers in Germany before they had to emigrate and those who had not completed their preparation for an academic career, although they might already have taken their doctorates in law before they left Germany. The former continued their research and writing, insofar as circumstances allowed, but were not normally appointed to formal professorships. There seemed to be no movement to create personal chairs for them, and there was a feeling that however good their understanding of English in general, their spoken English was insufficient for lecturing on a regular basis. Fritz Heinrich Schulz is a good example of the older generation. This chapter offers personal recollections of Schulz and other émigré legal scholars who escaped Germany and went to Britain: Guenter Treitel, Otto Lenel, Fritz Robert Pringsheim, Francis A. Mann, David Daube, and Walter Ullmann.
