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.
