On 15 May 2018, the IRZ brought the study course it had initiated on an introduction to German law with European references to a successful conclusion for the eighth time. The IRZ has been running this course at the Ivan Franko University of Lviv in Ukraine since 2009/2010.

Successful graduates were awarded their certificates at a ceremony attended by the permanent representative of the German Embassy in Ukraine, Wolfgang Bindseil.

The introductory lectures in the 2017/2018 academic year covered the following areas of the law:

  • constitutional law,
  • administrative law and administrative procedure law,
  • constitutional court law,
  • civil law and civil procedure law,
  • criminal law and criminal procedure law and
  • company and commercial law.

The lectures for this course take place in the German language. The lecturers come from German universities and from the professional field. Written tests are held at the end of the course of lectures. As has been the case every year, all the successful graduates were once again this year invited to attend the “IRZ Summer School on German Law”, which will take place in Bonn in July. The graduate with the best results, Anastasia Kotliarchuk, also receives a scholarship from the IRZ for a study visit to a German university.
