Jörg Scheinfeld began his law studies at the Ruhr University Bochum in 1995. After his first state examination in law in 2000, he worked as research associate and doctoral student in the professorial department of Rolf Dietrich Herzberg in Bochum. Parallel to this, from 2002 he completed his legal clerkship and passed his second state examination in law in 2004. One year later - again in Bochum - he gained his doctorate with a substantive-legislative thesis in the area of the General Sector of the Criminal Code: “The concept of Actus reus in § 24 StGB (Criminal Code)”.
In that same year, 2005, Jörg Scheinfeld was appointed research associate to Tatjana Hörnle, successor to Rolf Herzberg’s chair at Bochum. It was during this time that he began his postdoctoral project with the legal examination of medical science into “Organ transplantation and criminal law paternalism - an analysis of the penalty clauses concerning donor restrictions in German transplantation legislation”. This was just one of the treatises which earned him his doctorate from the law faculty of Hamburg University in 2012. He attained postdoctoral lectureship status for criminal law, criminal procedure law, criminal business law, medical criminal law and legal philosophy.
Jörg Scheinfeld was lecturer with special responsibilities at the Ruhr University in Bochum, from 2011 to 2015, and also lectured at the University of Mainz and the EBS Law School in Wiesbaden.
Since the beginning of 2016, he has been teaching Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure Law and Criminal Business Law at the EBS Law School, where he holds this professorship.
In Spring 2016 he was offered a professorship of criminal law, criminal procedure law and dependency at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz.
Jörg Scheinfeld has worked for several years in an advisory capacity in the area of criminal defence and supports defence counsel in the scientific aspects of their work, in particular in audit law.
