Studying in Hamburg
We are pleased that you are interested in studying at Universität Hamburg’s Faculty of Law.
Universität Hamburg is one of the younger German universities. Although officially founded in 1919, its roots extend back to the early 17th century. Today it is one of the largest universities in Germany with over 40,000 students.
At present, twenty four professors, nine junior professors, numerous professors emeriti, adjunct professors, and adjunct lecturers teach and research at the Faculty of Law. They are assisted by approximately one hundred research associates and the departmental offices. Administrative and organizational tasks are handled by the faculty administration and employees of the Central Law Library. Altogether, the Faculty supervises and educates nearly 4,000 students. The Faculty’s specialist law library, the Central Law Library or “glass book tower,” is one of the most modern facilities of its kind. Here you can conduct research, write term papers, read through specialist literature, and use the group rooms for learning together with other students—until 11:45 p.m. every day of the week!
During their stay in Hamburg, visiting students from partner universities are supported by the Department of International Affairs in cooperation with program coordinators from the Faculty of Law.
