Short CV:

Christian J. Tams is Professor of International Law at the University of Glasgow. Before moving to Glasgow in 2009, he was an assistant professor at the Walther Schücking Institute of International Law (Kiel) and, before that, a research assistant to Professors James Crawford (Cambridge) and Bruno Simma (UN International Law Commission). He was educated at the universities of Kiel, Lyon III and Cambridge, is a qualified German lawyer and an academic member of Matrix Chambers, London.

At Glasgow, Christian Tams directs the Law School’s LLM in international law and the Research Group on International Law, Conflict and Security. His research and teaching is based on a generalist understanding of international law, with an emphasis on the peaceful resolution of disputes, State responsibility and the law of treaties. In addition to his academic work, he is regularly involved in the practice of dispute settlement, advising States and other actors in proceedings before international courts and tribunals.

Christian Tams is a member of the Council of the German Society of International Law, the Standing Steering Group of the International Law Association and an emeritus fellow of the Young Academy of Scotland. He has held visiting positions at universities in Europe and overseas, incl. at Sciences Po Paris (2013) and the University of Vienna (2015-16). From 2018 onwards, he will act as Review Editor of the European Journal of International Law.
