In Memoriam Oliver Remien


It is with great sadness that we have learned of the untimely passing of Oliver Remien, Professor at the University of Würzburg, Germany, on Monday, 24 April 2023.

Oliver Remien, born in 1957, wrote his doctoral and habilitation theses at the Hamburg Max Planck Institute, where he worked as an assistant to Ulrich Drobnig. He joined the University of Würzburg in 2001. An area of perpetual interest for him was the comparison of European private law(s), with a particular focus on the “Four Freedoms” of primary EU law, the growing impact of secondary EU law, and the practilities of the increasingly frequent application of foreign law in the domestic courts of the Member States.

Our thoughts are with his family.
