Welcome to the U.S.-German Summer Law School Giessen

Spend your Summer in the Heart of Europe

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all information on our website are subject to change. Especially, it remains to be seen whether the program can take place in Giessen (as currently planned) or as a hybrid / online program. We will always post the latest updates on our website.


The Faculty of Law at Justus Liebig University Giessen, the Marquette University Law School and the University of Wisconsin Law are looking forward to host students from all over the world for the 13th U.S.-German Summer Law School in Giessen. We offer four courses of which students can choose two:

  • International Economic Law & Business Transactions
  • Business Ethics and Human Rights Law
  • Comparative Constitutional Law
  • International Intellectual Property Law

The program combines high-quality teaching with a wide range of cultural and social activities: During the four weeks in Giessen, students will study in a familiar atmosphere and meet excellent lecturers and practitioners from all over the world. Besides, they have the opportunity to attend a German language course offered at beginner's level. Students can join our field trips to the magnificent European capitals, Berlin and Brussels, and enjoy the beautiful German landscape or travel Europe during their free weekend. The program is completed with several social events, including sports and a Summer Barbeque and the accommodation in a hotel with breakfast.
