This is the fifth time the EBS Law School has welcomed international students at the beginning of the annual exchange programme EBS Law Term. From now until December, almost 50 participants from all over the world can familiarise themselves in four modules with the topic international commercial law.

During the introductory week, the students from South Africa, Canada, Australia, Taiwan, China, South America, Israel, Indonesia and Europe went on a trip to Heidelberg to visit the university library there. A visit to the ECB and Wiesbaden Museum as well as a workshop at the corporate law firm Gleiss Lutz in Frankfurt are also planned. During the semester, the participants are looking forward in particular to the trips to Luxembourg to visit the European Court of Justice and to Strasbourg to the European Parliament.

“Our University is proud to open our doors to students from our international partner universities. Describing the purpose and benefit of the programme, Academic Director of the EBS Law Term, Professor Matthias Weller states: “We would like to join together to broaden our professional horizon by exchanging ideas and experience from a variety of perspectives”. “With the Law Term, the EBS Universität demonstrates once again its international focus and the Law School’s international reputation.

The EBS Law Term offers the unique opportunity to gain insight into international commercial law, in lectures, joint workshops, excursions and activities, and at the same time an introduction into the major instruments of this field of law. Distinguished external lecturers and practitioners provide insight into, inter alia, international private law and the law of the EU; all lectures are delivered in English.
