"This program has been a real eye-opener for me. Coming from a common law system, I find it very interesting to discover how students from a civil law system think. I would definitely recommend students to come to Bucerius because this program is amazing – full stop."

"With engaged students from many different jurisdictions, it has been a stimulating experience teaching at Bucerius. The Program, with its international and comparative focus, provides a valuable learning environment for participating students. In today’s global legal environment, the varied perspectives from different legal systems are invaluable to all aspiring legal professionals."
Prof. Tan Cheng Han, S.C., City University of Hongkong, Visiting Lecturer
"This program offers students a unique opportunity to enhance their legal education and training in an international setting. There are very few legal issues in the business world today that do not have an international dimension. Lawyers can no longer limit themselves to an understanding of domestic law. "
Dr. André Fiebig, Quarles & Brady LLP, USA, Visiting Lecturer
