Günther Jakobs

Günther Jakobs (n. Mönchengladbach, July 26, 1937), is a German jurist, specializing in criminal law, criminal procedural law and philosophy of law.

Jakobs studied legal sciences in Cologne, Kiel and Bonn, and in 1967 he graduated from the University of Bonn with a thesis on criminal law and competition doctrine.

In 1971 he obtained his law degree, also in Bonn, through a work on negligence in the crime of result and the following year he held his first chair at the University of Kiel.

Jakobs enjoys prestige in Latin America and Spain, as his conception of Criminal Law, building a system of Functional Criminal Law, has been echoed in doctrine and jurisprudence. In this last area, the Jakobsian concept of the "Role" has served to limit the liability of those who only intervene with neutral behavior. By his position, he has also echoed his conception of authorship and participation in special crimes, with his theory of crimes of breach of duty, and his doctrine of the "criminal law of the enemy."
