Dr. Schiller passed his first State examination in 1972 at Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe University in Frankfurt Main. Between 1972 and 1975 he was a research assistant at the chair for criminal law at Frankfurt am Main University (Prof. Dr. Klaus Lüderssen).
In 1975 he was awarded his doctorate following his thesis titled »Grundprobleme einer empirisch strukturierten Strafgesetzgebung« (Underlying problems of an empirically-structured legislation). Since 1976, Dr. Schiller has been working as a lawyer in Frankfurt Main, and until January 31, 2019 as a notary public at the Frankfurt Main Higher Regional Court, including the administrative district Frankfurt Main.
Various publications followed in specialist journals, compendiums, commemerative bulletins and lecture collections. In 2014, the commemerative bulletin for Wolf Schiller was published on the occasion of his 65th birthday.
Dr. Schiller, in his capacity as a lawyer, is viewed as a competent liaison for German and international companies as well as renowned banking institutions when it comes to sensitive issues.
