Bernd Baron von Maydell (1934–2018) was a German lawyer and secondary school teacher, who specialised in social law.

Life

Bernd Baron von Maydell, also Berend F. von Maydell, was born on 19 July 1934 in Tallinn

After his resettlement from Estonia to the province of Posen and his schooling there, Maydell fled to the west with his family in February 1945 and settled in Hesse. He graduated from secondary school in 1954 at the Friedrich Wilhelm School in Eschwege. He then studied law and economics at Marburg and Berlin. His first law degree was awarded in 1958, his doctorate at the University of Marburg was awarded in the summer of 1960.

Thereafter von Maydell became a research fellow and lecturer at Bonn University. His habilitation took place in 1971 in the subjects of civil law, employment law and social law.

In 1975 von Maydell accepted the chair for social law at the Free University of Berlin, which he held until 1981. He then moved to the University of Bonn and became a full professor of civil law, employment and social law. There he also headed the university's Institute of Employment and Social Security Law. From 1990 to 1992 he was spokesman for the research training group "European and International Business Law".

In February 1992 von Maydell took over the management of the Max Planck Institute for Social Law and Social Policy founded by Hans F. Zacher in Munich. Since then he has also held an honorary professorship at the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich and the University of Munich. He also advised Central and Eastern European countries on social reform issues after the end of the Cold War and the dissolution of the Eastern Bloc.

After his retirement at the end of July 2002, von Maydell continued and expanded his advisory work on an international level. He also participated in the expert committee of the Bertelsmann Foundation "Zielen in den Altenpolitik". He died on 3 May 2018.
