Biography

Dr Andreas Rahmatian joined the School of Law in January 2010, after having been at the University of Leicester (2006-2009) and at the University of Stirling (2002-2006) where he taught mostly intellectual property law, equity and trusts and commercial law subjects. Before, he taught property law part-time at three colleges of the University of London, partly alongside his training as a solicitor with a City firm in London. He obtained his first degree in law and his PhD in private law, and another first degree in musicology and history, from the University of Vienna. After having completed an LLM at the University of London with an emphasis on comparative and intellectual property law, he worked as an associate attorney at law in a law firm in Vienna where he specialised in intellectual property law, before returning to the United Kingdom for qualification as a solicitor (England & Wales, non-practising). He teaches intellectual property and commercial law.
