Three Summer Programs in Law
Each July, Bucerius Law School welcomes advanced law students and young professionals to its campus in Hamburg, Germany for four intensive summer programs. The three-week short courses provide intensive training opportunities that enable participants to join an international group of peers in exploring current topics from practice with a faculty of renowned academics and field leaders.
Sessions revolve around group discussion, exercises and workshops; the diversity of participants supports the comparative treatment of topics and enables perspectives to be contrasted and critiqued.
Whether in the area of International Business Law, International IP Transactions or Legal Technology and Operations, sessions focus on the development of professional skills and the practical application of theory. Small group settings and a Socratic-style approach to learning combine to facilitate highly interactive sessions and enable participants to gain experience while earning academic credit.
Taking part in a summer program at Bucerius enables participants to expand their global network and join the Law School's web of over 2,000 international alumni spanning the globe.
