Discover the Law School Spirit

What makes Bucerius Law School so unique? To be honest, it's not our academic ranking or our well-designed curricula. It's not even our beautiful city, which we so love and adore... It's our people! Our staff, our faculty, and especially our students, make Bucerius Law School such a remarkable experience.

A diverse community of unique talents

At Bucerius Law School, you will find a community of motivated peers who are all looking to make the most of their time here - and not just academically. Whether you are looking for someone with whom to explore the city, or to run a marathon, or to start a charity, you are very likely to find them - right here on our little campus.

There is a wealth of extracurricular activities to choose from for international students. Only a few clubs and teams require German language proficiency, such as mentoring a high school student or writing for the student newspaper.
