Colorful campus in central Hamburg

A time-honored, modernized main building with two contemporary annexes, situated between Hamburg's attractive down-town area and one of the city's largest recreational parks - the Bucerius Law School campus is a hidden gem with wow-effect.

But that is not what makes the campus unique. It's the people. The people who study, teach, work and conduct research at Bucerius Law School every day and live the "Law School Spirit".
