Defending constitutional and human rights in court, advancing non-discrimination and inclusion policies in the context of gender, racism, able-ism, and other social inequalities, students work on practical cases in an interdisciplinary setting.
By integrating academic training and practical case work, in close collaboration with practice experts, the Clinic provides students with the opportunity to gain both practical skills and in-depth knowledge of a specialized field of law. They get to know the tasks and workings of specialized advice centers, of lobby organizations and of law offices, expand their theoretical knowledge and gather practical experience, such as writing expert reports or case briefs.
The Humboldt Law Clinic Grund- und Menschenrechte is headed by Prof. Dr. Ulrike Lembke and taught and supervised by Doris Liebscher, Maya Markwald and Karina Theurer. The Clinic is affiliated with the Law and Society Institute (LSI) at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.
