"I appreciate the close and friendly working relationship with my excellent research assistants, which has already often resulted in common research projects, and the many-facetted opportunities to incorporate new impulses from practice into my research."
Prof. Dr. Hermann Pünder
"The law school is incredibly well-organized. Contrary to many other institutions, many tasks are being performed by real professionals. That creates a special kind of room for research activities."
Prof. Dr. Jens Prütting
"It's only here that one meets exceptional student candidates - straight out of high school - with whom you can discuss procedural justice during intake interviews and in fact come across a central theme for one's own academic research."
Research institutes and centers
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".
