Seventh IRZ Summer School on "German Law" in Bonn

Published: July 8, 2017

From 2 to 7 July 2017, the IRZ organised its seventh “Summer School on German Law”. This year's school was held in Bonn.

Originally devised as an addition to the German-language supplementary study course on the introduction of German law at the Ivan Franko University of Lviv (Western Ukraine), the summer course has appealed to numerous IRZ partner states for many yeas now and every year is increasingly in great demand. Participants must have a very good level of German.

This year, eleven IRZ partner states were involved: Albania, Armenia, Georgia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Moldova, Serbia, Syria, Russia, Ukraine and Vietnam. Albania, Syria and Vietnam were represented for the first time.

The Summer School included lectures on the following legal fields:

The lecture and exercise on methodology, which had been very popular the previous year, was also back on the programme. The Summer School once again also included a visit to hearings at a civil and criminal division of the Regional and Local Courts of Bonn, as well as talks at the University of Bonn, during which participants could find out about the opportunities for study courses for foreign students and post-graduates.

Due to the great response and with a view to encouraging young legal talent, the IRZ Summer School, which is predominantly aimed at students and young law professionals, is set to continue in years to come.
