The Institute regularly invites high-profile legal scholars from Germany and abroad to speak at our established lecture series such as the Ernst Rabel Lecture and the Academic Council. Our Centres of Expertise have also initiated their own guest lecture series dedicated to discussing questions related to their legal spheres. Additional event formats foster academic exchange among early career scholars and support them in developing their networks within the Institute.
