Default Germany: University of Hamburg - Faculty of Law

The University of Hamburg (German: Universität Hamburg) is a university in Hamburg, Germany. It was founded on 1 April 1919 by Wilhelm Stern and others. It grew out of the previous Allgemeines Vorlesungswesen and the Kolonialinstitut (Colonial Institute) as well as the Akademisches Gymnasium. Today there are around 38,000 students (as of the start of 2006).

The annual recruitment of about 7,000 freshmen contributes to the current total of 38,000 students, of which every year 3,500 graduate and 900 receive doctoral degrees. Students can choose from a 120 different majors which are offered by six faculties.

The Law Faculty of the University of Hamburg

A short overview

Under "Studies" you will find links to lecture indexes and timetables of various study programs and to studies-related news of the Faculty of Law. The "General Information" area provides basic and detailed information about living in Hamburg. The sections "Staff" and "Contact us" offer information about the Faculty's personnel and how to contact them electronically or via phone.

Please note that most of the departments offer their information in German language only, and some of the general links also lead to German language information. We constantly update our English pages and try to translate the parts still in German bit by bit for the convenience of our international visitors.
