Teaching & Research

Teaching and research are of equal importance at Bucerius Law School. In addition to lecturing in two degree and several non-degree programs, Bucerius professors are actively involved in research and publishing.

Research is focused on corporate and business law, as well as the international dimensions of law. This is demonstrated, for example, in the Institute for Corporate and Capital Markets Law and the Institute for Foundation Law and the Law of Non-Profit Organizations. Private, criminal and public law, as well as the historical and philosophical foundations of law, are other important areas of research. 

Since its founding in the year 2000, Bucerius Law School has awarded an impressive number of doctoral degrees and one German qualification to become a professor (“Habilitation”). Furthermore, the amount of scholarly publications from the Law School is constantly increasing.
