Stefan von Raumer has been serving his clients as litigation attorney on matters of restitution law and property / ownership law since 1993, and since 1997 in matters of constitutional law and matters governed by the laws concerned by the European Convention on Human Rights. In 2001, he founded his law firm specialized in these fields in Berlin, Rechtsanwaltskanzlei von Raumer.
Today, he is one of the most acknowledged specialist for application proceedings before the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg and for constitutional complaints brought before the Bundesverfassungsgericht (BVerfG, Federal Constitutional Court) in Karlsruhe. Complaint proceedings before the European Court of Human Rights are conducted both against the Federal Republic of Germany and against the other 46 signatory states to the European Convention on Human Rights. Before these courts, he looks after cases in all fields of substantive law, from administrative law to civil law and criminal law.
Besides his many other publications on matters of jurisprudence, von Raumer has been continuing, since 2011, the work on the standard reference on the European Convention on Human Rights that Dr. Jens Meyer-Ladewig initiated and looked after in the previous three editions: he has taken on the fourth edition of the Commentary on the European Convention on Human Rights “Meyer-Ladewig, Nettesheim, von Raumer EMRK” (published December 2016) as editor and author in a team of twenty-two select collaborators and is actually working on the fifth edition.
Stefan von Raumer is also sought after as an expert, instructor, and consultant both nationally and internationally in light of his comprehensive expertise.
He is one of currently eleven members of the Committee on Constitutional Law of the Deutscher Anwaltverein (DAV, German Bar Association) and, in this capacity, regularly prepares so-called “Voten” (proposals for decisions) on constitutional law regarding pending constitutional complaints at the request of the Bundesverfassungsgericht (BVerfG, Federal Constitutional Court). In many cases, these proposals will be considered by the highest constitutional court of Germany in the decisions it ultimately hands down.
Stefan von Raumer deals with the human rights issues that are addressed to the legal profession in Germany in his capacity as member of the Human Rights Committee of the German Lawyers Association (DAV) and as Commissioner for European Affairs of its Human Rights Committee.
As Chair of Germany in the Human Rights Committee with the Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe (CCBE), Brussels, Stefan von Raumer is able to influence all topics of relevance to human rights that lawyers in Europe must address. As one of only a few, select members of the exclusive CCBE Permanent Delegation at the European Court of Human Rights, he represents the interests of more than 1 million European attorneys vis-à-vis the judges and the presidency of the Strasbourg court and discusses current developments at regular round-table meetings with them.
Stefan von Raumer is active also on behalf of Stiftung für Internationale Rechtliche Zusammenarbeit e.V. (IRZ e.V., German Foundation for International Legal Cooperation). He has worked in numerous countries, particularly in Eastern Europe, in training lawyers, judges, and public prosecutors in the laws concerned by the European Convention on Human Rights, restitution law, and property and ownership law.
Besides these activities, Stefan von Raumer also participates in international humanitarian missions. Thus, he performed more than one hundred interviews with Syrian legal practitioners in November of 2016 as a member of an international team of experts working in the neighboring states of Syria, and is co-author of the ILAC “Rule of Law Assessment Report Syria 2017” published in the wake of this mission in July of 2017, which attracted international attention. He actually continues this work on Syria with ILAC and the CEELI Institute focusing on the future challenges of transition and of restitution solutions that will be an essential part of a peace finding process in the country.
