"Gender-Competent Legal Education" is published as the first textbook of its kind

The textbook “Gender-Competent Legal Education”, co-edited and partly co-authored by Prof. Dr. Thomas Giegerich and Dr. Mareike Fröhlich together with Prof. Dr. Dragica Vujadinovic from the University of Belgrade, has just been published by Springer Publishers in the series “Springer Textbooks in Law”. Julia Jungfleisch was Assistant Editor.

It is the first textbook of its kind to take a fresh look at all important areas of law from a gender perspective in 19 chapters on over 700 pages. It is preceded by a general part on comparative legal history, feminist political theory and legal theory, sociology of law, feminist judgments and gender research and feminist methodologies.

The textbook is intended to support gender mainstreaming in legal education worldwide, which has so far been primarily “malestreamed”. The authors, who have backgrounds in law and social sciences, research and teach at the University of Belgrade (Serbia), the University of Cadiz (Spain), LUMSA University in Palermo (Italy), Örebro University (Sweden) and Saarland University (Germany). The textbook is an important intellectual output of a joint Erasmus+ project launched in 2019 under the name New Quality in Education for Gender Equality – Strategic Partnership for the Development of Master’s Study Program “Law and Gender” – LAWGEM.

In addition to the hardback edition of the textbook (ISBN 978-3-031-14359-5), which is available for purchase, there also is an online version that is freely accessible worldwide here.
