The son of a patrician family, Pierre Lullin was born in Geneva on 30 September 1712. He studied law at the Academy of Geneva under Jean-Jacques Burlamaqui, and succeeded him as professor of natural and civil law in 1740. He had to apply for the professorship and held two probatory lectures at the Academy of Geneva, the first one, Positiones juridicae de usucapionibus, on 15 May 1735, the second one, Positiones juridicae de aleatoribus, on 2 December 1740. He held the chair until 1756, when he was elected to the Small  Council of the city. He was also director of the hospital (1754-56), state clerk (1762-1781) and syndic (1782).
