He was son of Carel Daniel Asser (1813-85), and grandson of Carel Asser (1780-1836).
Asser was professor of commercial and private international law at the University of Amsterdam from 1862 to 1893.
In 1891 Asser prevailed upon the Dutch government to convoke the Hague Conference for the Unification of International Private Law, which first met in 1893 and later became a permanent institution, responsible, among other things, for the Hague treaties of 1902-05 concerning family law.
Asser was a Netherlands delegate to the Hague peace conferences of 1899 and 1907.
TobiasMichaelCarelAsser (April 28, 1838-July 29, 1913) was born in Amsterdam into a family with a tradition in the field of law, both his father and his grandfather having been well-established lawyers and his uncle having served as the Dutch minister of justice.
Asser also presided over the conferences of 1900 and 1904, which resulted in several important treaties governing international family law, including matters relating to marriage, divorce, legal separation, and guardianship of minors.
Asser's interest in international law led him, along with the Belgian Gustave Rolin-Jaequemyns and the Englishman John Westlake, to found a journal of international law, Revue de droit international et de législation comparée in 1869.
