About the Author

Jan M. Smits, Professor of Private Law, Faculty of Law, Maastricht University, Netherlands


Jan Smits has long been one of the most interesting and original authors on European private law theory. Now he offers his views on legal scholarship, and they are as original as they are thought-provoking. His plea for a legal scholarship that maintains its identity vis-a-vis neighboring disciplines without collapsing into doctrinairism is bound to yield lively discussions - and hopefully will help re-establish a proper place for legal scholarship, in Europe and beyond. --Ralf Michaels, Duke University, US
