Merlin Mitschker

"I like international law more than maths. I mean, if I got 50 cents for every failed math exam, I'd have 6,30 € now."

Julia Reiher

Student Assistant

"The fight against racism and inequality in our society is important for me personally and especially in present times more and more for our law system. In my free time I love to travel and enjoy good food."

Juri Salzwedel

Student Assistant

"International law is an important tool for international understanding and peaceful coexistence, I think it is important to deal with it, to be curious and to look beyond one's own cultural and legal horizon."

Luisa Schlotterer

Student Assistant

"To me it did not make sense how law is working that’s why I chose to study law. Still, I try to understand the functioning of law and especially how law can be used to improve living conditions. After studying, what could be better than a delicious dinner with the company of good friends?"

Karl Wachtel

Student Assistant

"We’re here to put a dent in the universe. Otherwise, why else even be here?"
