German jurist, the nation's most renowned constitutional theorist and the Third Reich's Crown Jurist until his fall in 1936.

Schmitt became a Professor of Law in 1921, forging a successful career as a teacher and writer on legal and political theory. As the Nazis came to power, they regarded him with some suspicion. He was considered politically unreliable as he had no prejudice against Jews. Though he tried to show loyalty to the Reich, he was coolly received and dismissed in 1936, after when he held minor posts.

Schmitt wrote his "Memoirs" in 1950. He died on 7 April 1985 in Plettenberg, Germany.
