Leopold Wenger Institute

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Leopold Wenger Institute for Legal History has united the chairs of legal history at the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich since 1956 . It is divided into the two departments of Ancient Legal History and Papyrus Research, headed by Johannes Platschek, and Bavarian and German Legal History, represented by Hans-Georg Hermann and Susanne Lepsius (as of November 2018). The institute owes its name to the legal historian Leopold Wenger , whose important library formed the basis for that of the institute.
