Mr. Claudia Bouteligier, Lecturer and PhD Candidate at the institute for the Interdisciplinary Study of the Law at Leiden Law School
Claudia Bouteligier

Claudia Bouteligier studied Law (BA) and received her LLM in Jurisprudence and Legal Philosophy, both at Leiden University. She was a junior lecturer at the department of Jurisprudence and a guest lecturer at the department of Legal Philosophy, where she developed and taught a course about Dostoevsky in the context of law, philosophy and literature.
Currently she is a lecturer and researcher at the department of Jurisprudence, where she is working on a dissertation concerning 'law and literature'. With reference to Buber, Dostoevsky and Sartre, this research re-examines core assumptions within 'law and literature'. From this personalistic perspective the question what the importance of literature can be for the law and everyone engaged with it, is answered.
