In the interest of maintaining the programme's high standards, the number of participants will be limited to 25.

Prerequisites for participation are a minimum of one year of legal training at a university and a very good command of written and spoken English. 

Even though we do not require students to upload language test results during the online application process, we urge students with poor language skills to abstain from applying. Professors will not be able to accommodate language difficulties. Knowledge of German is not a prerequisite.

Note: After the programme  has reviewed your application you might receive an email asking for proof that you have successfully completed an English-language test (e.g. TOEFL or IELTS). English native speakers don't need to provide an English-language test.
