Venue of the Conference

Bucerius Law School: A green campus in downtown Hamburg

The main building of Bucerius Law School was built at the beginning of the 20th century by the architect Albert Erbe and housed the Institute of General and Applied Botany for almost a century. In 1919, the Institute became a part of the newly founded University of Hamburg. In 1999, the ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius purchased the building from the City of Hamburg and renovated it to meet the needs of a modern university. The renovations were done with care to preserve the building’s historic beauty.

Bucerius Law School is located in between Hamburg's downtown area and the popular "Planten un Blomen" city park. The campus is easily accessible via public transportation.
