Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Faculty of Law

Welcome to the Law Faculty of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin!

We welcome all students, employees and guests to the winter semester 2022/23, especially first-semester students. We are pleased that you have decided to study at our faculty. Information for the first semester can be found here. According to current planning, the winter semester will be carried out entirely in attendance.


The Faculty of Law congratulates its member Martin Eifert on being elected judge of the Federal Constitutional Court by the German Bundestag. He will succeed Susanne Baer in the First Senate, which deals primarily with the protection of fundamental rights. Martin Eifert is thus the third constitutional judge in the young history of the faculty since reunification in 1990: Dieter Grimm, still elected as a Bielefeld university lecturer, moved to our university after his term in Karlsruhe (1987–1999); Susanne Baer's twelve-year term ends in early February 2023.


Humboldt University Law School condemns Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine and is deeply concerned for the country's inhabitants. Our thoughts are with our colleagues, fellow students and their families.
