“Professors Kemper and Walter were important lecturers for our university . With their high level of practical knowledge, in the fields of business law, economics and business administration, they have always prepared students optimally for the professional world. I am glad to have had such colleagues in our university team. For their retirement, I wish them both only the very best.”

University President Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Jürgen Lehmann

About the people

Prof. Dr. Jürgen Kemper was born in Duisburg (North Rhine-Westphalia) in 1958. After passing his second state law examination in Rhineland-Palatinate, he completed his doctorate at the University of Trier. From 1997 to 2010, he was a specialist attorney for labor law; since March 1, 2010, he has been lecturing at Hof University of Applied Sciences in the fields of labor law and private commercial law.

“I have particularly fond memories of the moot courts. Here, students were able to practice with “real” judges in simulated court hearings how to prepare pleadings to a court and, in particular, to practice their appearance in a court hearing.”

Prof. Dr. Jürgen Kemper

Prof. Dr. Maximilian Walter was born in Kempten (Allgäu) in 1956 and graduated in economics from the University of Regensburg. He obtains his doctorate at the FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg. On September 1, 1994, Prof. Dr. Maximilian Walter is appointed professor in the economics department at Hof. He is the very first professor at Hof University of Applied Sciences and deputy to the president until July 1999. From 07.07.1999 to 14.03.2002 he holds the office of Vice President.

Plans for retirement

The contact to colleagues, but also to students, will probably be missed by both of them in the future. Nevertheless, there are already plans for retirement:

“To become a flaneur – that is my personal goal for the hopefully many, many more years in retirement.”

Prof. Dr. Jürgen Kemper
