Student Interns and Rechtsreferendare

The In­sti­tute of­fers out­stand­ing young law stu­dents and Recht­s­ref­er­endar­en (law­yers-in-train­ing), with ex­cel­lent grades, the op­por­tun­ity to gain in­sight in­to aca­dem­ic work at a re­search in­sti­tute. Ap­plic­a­tions are al­ways welcome from Rechts­ref­er­endare who would like to spend the elect­ive sta­tion of their train­ing (Wahl­sta­tion) at the In­sti­tute as well as from law stu­dents en­rolled at a uni­versity who would like to do an in­tern­ship (prac­tic­um) here.

A keen in­terest in crim­in­al law, pub­lic law or crim­in­o­logy is re­quired and should be demon­strated in your ap­plic­a­tion by ref­er­ence to oth­er in­tern­ships, high grades, oth­er activ­it­ies or ex­per­i­ence in this area, etc. Good know­ledge of Ger­man and Eng­lish as well as ba­sic com­puter skills are fur­ther as­sets.
