At the IHL Clinic Gießen, students are provided with interactive classes. Students have the opportunity to work in partnership with the German Red Cross by analyzing German state practice regarding IHL. This includes analysis of military manuals, national legislation, case law, and governmental official statements. That work serves the purpose of updating the national practice database of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) regarding customary international humanitarian law.


Also, in the end of the year students might participate in a training program at the German Red Cross headquarters in Berlin, where, together with the students from the Bochum IHL Clinic, they can learn from humanitarian experts. Besides, every year we instruct groups of students to participate in moot court competitions for the university team.
