On 25 November 2019, a group of German and foreign students, who are at the University of Bonn on a scholarship from the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, visited the IRZ to learn about its activities as part of their programme for the semester.

IRZ Head of Section Dr. Stefan Pürner gave a lecture and presented practical examples of the activities of the IRZ to introduce the students to the international legal advice provided by Germany. Afterwards, the guests made the most of the opportunity to ask questions and discuss various aspects.

The visit had been initiated by a young Serbian lawyer, Peter Brudar, who is currently working on his MA thesis on competition law issues in connection with algorithms in Bonn, with a grant from the Konrad Adenauer Foundation. During the round of introductions, Peter Brudar pointed out that he had predominantly acquired the necessary background knowledge to get his grant through the activities of the IRZ in his home country. Brudar graduated from the legal terminology course for German-speaking law professionals from Serbia, which has been organised jointly by the IRZ and the Law Faculty in Belgrade for more than a decade now. He has also attended the IRZ Summer School on German Law. As he emphasised during the visit, both measures allowed him to develop the ability to work on German law in the German language.
