From 2006 to 2008, he worked as a trade lawyer (WTO law) at the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) in Berlin. In 2008, he started his academic career as a Professor for Shipping Law at the University of Applied Sciences in Bremen, Germany.

He also supervised a multitude of bachelor theses on various subjects of maritime law and acted as the Director of Studies for the newly established bachelor degree in “International Studies in Shipping and Chartering” (ISSC B.A.). In 2012, Dr. Jessen joined the University of Hamburg, to accept a position as Associate Professor for Public Maritime Law and the Law of the Sea.

He also contributed a number of chapters to the new book “EU Maritime Law” (published in 2016) which he also co-edited.

In October 2016, Dr. Jessen joined the WMU and will teach mainly within the Maritime Law and Policy specialization. His main areas of research are the Law of the Sea (in particular deep-sea mining and issues relating to the extraction of mineral offshore resources) as well as maritime law / maritime security.
