Law Studies

To honour the legacy of its founder, the lawyer and judge, politician and publisher Gerd Bucerius, the ZEIT-Stiftung concentrates its research funding on law studies. 

The foundation initiated Germany's first privately-funded law school. Bucerius Law School in Hamburg, founded in 2000, trains outstanding jurists who graduate with an international outlook and a high degree of social awareness.

The school offers its students a practical and internationally-oriented course of studies, as well as a broad range of study options in the 'studium generale' scheme.
