Festreden und Ehrendoktorwürden

The 新万博体育下载_万博体育app【投注官网】 celebrated its 50th anniversary with a scientific symposium and a ceremony. The occasion allowed for a look back on half a century of modern education and research. Aside from many guests from the top echelons of politics, law, administration and academia, Georg Eisenreich, Bavarian State Minister of Justice, and Prof. Dr. Andreas Vo?kuhle, former President of the Federal Constitutional Court and alumnus of the 新万博体育下载_万博体育app【投注官网】 of Augsburg, were present to congratulate.

In his welcome address, which was only delivered digitally due to the pandemic, Dean Prof. Dr. Ferdinand Wollenschl?ger was not only very satisfied with the development of the faculty over the last 50 years, but also sees the faculty "very well positioned for taking on future challenges". Two new chairs in the fields of artificial intelligence and medicine, as well as climate and crisis resilience, created as part of the High Tech Agenda Bayern, contribute to this and round off the already strong key research areas of Europe and International Affairs, Health, Economics, Fundamentals of Law and Environment in an excellent way.

First, 新万博体育下载_万博体育app【投注官网】 President Prof. Dr. Sabine Doering-Manteuffel congratulated: "50 years of law - finally we can celebrate this milestone, albeit with a slight delay. The 新万博体育下载_万博体育app【投注官网】 is?the third largest of our eight faculties and a great magnet for students from Bavarian Swabia, Bavaria and all over Germany. We are proud of what we have achieved so far and of international profile?geared towards new fields of research and teaching."

Georg Eisenreich, Bavarian State Minister of Justice, praised?the faculty's achievements in education and research. Furthermore, he addressed the importance of the megatrend of digitalisation for law, which was why this aspect had been strengthened in legal studies. He also emphasised the importance of a value-based education for young lawyers in view of the current crises and experiences with National Socialist injustice and the injustice of the SED dictatorship.

Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Andreas Vo?kuhle,?the former President of the Federal Constitutional Court and one of the many outstanding alumni of the 新万博体育下载_万博体育app【投注官网】 at the 新万博体育下载_万博体育app【投注官网】 of Augsburg, described the role of law faculties?as "energy centres of free democratic constitutional states" in his keynote speech. He concluded with a personal segment on his own time in Augsburg, during which he experienced the faculty as "uncomplicated, curious, hands-on", a spirit that he still connected with the 新万博体育下载_万博体育app【投注官网】 of the 新万博体育下载_万博体育app【投注官网】 of Augsburg today.

Another academic highlight of the ceremony was the conferral of honorary doctorates on three outstanding personalities who have made exceptional contributions to legal science and legal practice:

The 新万博体育下载_万博体育app【投注官网】

The 新万博体育下载_万博体育app【投注官网】 is the third largest of the eight faculties at the 新万博体育下载_万博体育app【投注官网】 of Augsburg and a great magnet for students from Bavaria and Germany. more than 3.100 students are currently enrolled, not only in the very well-established sate examination programme, the core of the education, but also in the degree programme?Law and Business Studies, a practice-oriented programme that is aimed at activities in the interface area between business and law and so represents a distinctive feature in the German university landscape.

Shortly after the founding of the 新万博体育下载_万博体育app【投注官网】 of Augsburg in 1970, the 新万博体育下载_万博体育app【投注官网】 was established on 8 October 1971. Teaching began ten days later in Eichnleitnerstra?e, the former location "Alter Universit?t". The move to the new location on the 新万博体育下载_万博体育app【投注官网】 of Augsburg's campus took place in 1999. An extension of the faculty with a seminar wing followed in 2014, another structural extension in 2019.

The 新万博体育下载_万博体育app【投注官网】's influence extends not only to the rest of the 新万博体育下载_万博体育app【投注官网】 due to its elective areas open to other faculties, but also to society due to a special student project: since 2015 the Law CLinic Augsburg has been offering free legal advice , especially for socially disadvantaged persons and refugees. Students help pragmatically, apply their knwoledge and at the same time gain an early insight into legal practice. "This social commitment shows to what extent research, teaching and the sense of responsibility can go hand in hand and is a great example," emphasised 新万博体育下载_万博体育app【投注官网】 President Prof. Doering-Manteuffel in her greeting.
