Courses of German and European Law, known also as the ‘School of German Law’) are organised under the auspices of the Faculty of Law and Administration at Warsaw University since 1996. They are organized as result of a close cooperation with the following institutions:

  • The Faculty of Law and Administration, Warsaw University;
  • The Faculty of Law and Economics at the Friedrich-Wilhelm Rhein University of Bonn;
  • German Foundation for International Legal Cooperation.

One-year course of German and European law is designed primarily for students of law and Polish lawyers interested in the legal system of the Federal Republic of Germany and its increasingly closer relationship with European law. The lectures are also open to students and graduates of other faculties if their work or interests are related to the course.

Lectures and seminars (all in German) are held by professors and advocates. Scientific supervision is reserved to Prof. Marcus Lutter, professor emeritus of Bonn University and doctor honoris causa of Warsaw University.

All hitherto activity of the School of German Law includes seven courses in the academic years 1996/07- 2002/03. The School can now boast 168 (they have regularly attended the seminars and received a graduation certificate after passing the final exams). Numerous non-registered students also attend the seminars and lectures. It is already the eighth course of German and European law that is under way since autumn 2003.

Exchange students can participate in the course as non-registered students.

All courses at the School of German Law have been organised with a no-fee policy. This has been possible due to both the courtesy of German lecturers who hold their lectures pro bono and due to the financial support from many institutions and companies. The School of German Law is supported not only by the German Foundation for International Legal Cooperation but also by numerous private sponsors.
