This is what makes the EBS Law School so special

Jura Open Day
At the Law Open Day, applicants came closer to discovering the secret of good examination results

This event drew large crowds: despite very warm summer temperatures, around 120 applicants, parents and interested parties attended the Law School to inform themselves about the degree programmes, the admission procedure and the various financing options. The booths of the EBS partner law firms were particularly popular.

On this major summer selection day, some high school graduates had already been accepted to the EBS Law School which, for the second year in succession, can be proud of having taught two of Hesse’s best law graduates. A few places, however, are still available: Those interested can apply for a course of study by 24 June. Prof. Emanuel V. Towfigh, Dean of the EBS Law School, emphasizes: “Everyone can study with us, regardless of their financial means, if they are capable and motivated”. Visitors to the Open Day were also able to find out about the many different ways of financing their studies at EBS - from various scholarships and the reverse generation contract of the EBS Alumni Education Fund to traditional student loans.

Many visitors were particularly interested in the curricula and were pleased that the EBS professors presented the course contents personally and were available for consultation. The Criminal Law Workshop “Deadly Algorithms” by Prof. Christoph Wolf was very popular. The lecture hall set the scene and the first criminal law problems were solved in groups. In this way the applicants had their first taste of legal analysis, which will accompany them through their subsequent law studies, right up to the state examination.

Last but not least, the Law Open Day was a perfect opportunity to network. EBS partner law firms presented themselves at seven stands. The future lawyers seized the opportunity to talk to the lawyers present from Clifford Chance, Gleiss Lutz, Latham & Watkins, Noerr, Norton Rose Fulbright, P+P Pöllath + Partners, Shearman & Sterling. “I would have been delighted if I could have attended such a fair as a young student,” says Mareike Szynka, LL.M., lawyer at Pöllath + Partners. “I would like to dispel any certainty the young people might have and answer questions so that they can better assess what they will face later in their careers.” This was also supported by the relaxed exchange with the EBS students who had, as always, put a huge effort into helping to organise the event. “I asked the students about accommodation in Wiesbaden and what you can do here. Now I know that I would feel at home here,” says applicant Lara.
