For our guest lecture series, we regularly invite renowned researchers from Germany and abroad to present their research and discuss its legal policy implications with us. We seek to feature lectures from the research areas represented by all three of the Institute’s departments, with a spectrum of topics ranging from criminal law theory, constitutional law, and security to philosophy of law and criminology. The lecture series focuses primarily on topics that are closely related to the Institute’s projects – spanning both empirical and theoretical research.
To enable as many people as possible to participate as audience members, the events typically take place in the afternoon or evening (at the moment exclusively in virtual form, due to the current pandemic situation). Wherever possible, lectures are recorded and made available in video podcast format on this page.
