Albert Armin Ehrenzweig graduated at the Law School at the University of Vienna  on December 18th, 1928 with the academic degree 'Dr. iur.'.
He became "Privatdozent" for "Bürgerliches Recht" at the Law School of the University of Vienna.

He was persecuted in times of Nazism as a Jew lost his position and was thrown out of the university on April 8th, 1938. He was able to emigrate to the USA.
In times of Nazism he was also deprived of his academic degree on July 17th, 1942 with the racist argument, that he as a Jew was not considered dignified an academic degree of a German university ('eines akademischen Grades einer deutschen Hochschule unwürdig'). It took 13 years since the deprivation – and a very long time since the end of Nazism – until the regranting of the doctorate took finally place on May 15th, 1955.
