Christian J. Tams joined the Law School in 2008, having previously been an assistant professor at the Walther Schücking Institute of International Law at the University of Kiel. At Glasgow, he convenes the LL.M. in international law and leads the research cluster on international and comparative law.

Professor Tams studied law at the universities of Kiel, Lyon III and Cambridge (LLM, 2000; PhD, 2004), and is a qualified German lawyer (admitted in 2005). His research in international law focuses on the law of state responsibility, dispute settlement and investment protection, but is based on a generalist approach to the discipline. He has published 12 books (as author or editor) and approximately 100 articles and notes on questions of international law, EU law and German constitutional law, most recently The Statute of the International Court of Justice: A Commentary(2nd edn., OUP 2012), Legacies of the Permanent Court of International Justice(Brill/Nijhoff 2013)and The United Nations Convention on Jurisdictional Immunities of States and Their Property: A Commentary (OUP 2013). A selection of his contributions is available on SSRN.

In addition to his academic work, Professor Tams has advised states in proceedings before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS). He is a member of the German Court of Arbitration for Sport, of the ILA Committee on the Use of Force, of the scientific advisory board of the European Journal of International Law and of the Royal Society of Edinburgh Young Academy. He has held visiting positions at universities in France, China, and Germany and, in 2013, is the Vincent Wright Visiting Professor at Sciences Po Paris.
