Klaas Hendrik Eller is an Assistant Professor at Amsterdam Law School. His research interests are centered around the spatial and distributive effects of private and economic law. His work explores how law co-constitutes and connects sites of the global economy, such as along global value chains, in financialized real estate and urban infrastructure. In 2022, he was awarded a 3-year ‘Veni’ grant by the Dutch Research Council (NWO) for his project ‘Recoding Global Production’, a legal ethnographic analysis of compliance practices along global value chains with a focus on the electronics sector.
Klaas received his legal education in Germany and France and passed the German bar exam (Referendariat) at the High Court of Berlin with secondments inter alia at the Supreme Court of the State of Israel (Justice Daphne Barak-Erez) and at an international arbitration boutique. He earned his PhD from the University of Cologne, Germany (2019), and later was a Fellow both at Tel Aviv University’s and Harvard University’s Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics as well as a Visiting Professor at Tel Aviv University. He is a co-editor-in-chief of the German Law Journal.
