Professor Ilse Reiter-Zatloukal is a distinguished researcher at the Department for Legal and Constitutional History of the Law Faculty at the University of Vienna.
Her enthusiasm especially about the history of law throughout the ages in all its different aspects combined with her great dedication to teaching makes her not only one of the students’ most beloved professors, but also gets her the utmost respect from her colleagues. Her work’s focus on legal gender studies made her an obvious and natural choice to talk to us about the history of women in law in Austria.
Furthermore, she is not only a member of numerous committees and associations within her field of expertise, but also holds one of the highest posts at this very institution as the Vice Chair of the Senate of the University of Vienna.
She also finds the time and commitment to publish on a regular basis. One of these publications is the acclaimed book “Advokaten 1938”, which shines a light on the fate of mostly Jewish lawyers who were disbarred in Austria during the Nazi era and either had to emigrate or were murdered in concentration camps.
