Academic Council

The Academic Council (wissenschaftliches Konzil) represents a cornerstone of the academic exchange taking place at the Institute. In addition to the doctoral and post-doctoral candidates working at the Institute, the Konzil invites the attendance of guest scholars, Institute scholarship holders and interested members of neighbouring law faculties. Typically occurring at six-week intervals, the Konzil features Institute fellows, postdocs and doctoral students presenting research findings of general interest. Foreign guest scholars are also regularly speaking at the Academic Council, reporting on their research or current legal developments in their home countries.
