I studied law at the universities of Jena and Nantes from 2011 until 2017. In 2015, I co-founded the Refugee Law Clinic Jena. At the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena I am currently researching the implication of bias crimes in migration law. From 11/2017 until 08/2018 I worked in the Branch Office in Berlin. I am looking forward to continuing my activities as member of the Executive Board.
When I was looking for options how to best make use of my legal knowledge for the benefit of other people whilst being a student in Cologne, I would initially never have expected that something like a Refugee Law Clinic (I initiated the one in Cologne and acted as its founding chairman) would evolve from it. Today, I am all the more happy to see the RLC Cologne as an established project and enjoy being able to help shape our Germany-wide umbrella organization of already more than 30 such projects.
Born and raised in Berlin, Germany. Studied jurisprudence in Berlin and Zürich. Chairman and founding member of the Refugee Law Clinic Berlin. Keen interest in legal theory, comparative law and civil liberties.
I studied law in Hanover and I am a founding member of the Refugee Law Clinic Hanover. Currently, I am working as an academic assistant for the Refugee Law Clinic Hanover and I am doing my doctors degree on the identification procedure according to the AsylG.
Hello and Moin (as we say in Northern Germany)! My name is David and I have the honour to be responsible for financial affairs of the Refugee Law Clinics umbrella organisation. Besides this work I am a voluntary counsellor for the Refugee Law Clinic Kiel, here also responsible for the training of new counsellors. If there is time left, I study law and do several kinds of sport. I am looking forward to my time in the umbrella organisation. If you have questions or problems please do not hesitate to contact me.
Together with a commited team of students, I have been running the Law Clinic at Bucerius Law School in Hamburg since 2016. As an arts scholar and systems thinker, I focus on counselling techniques, communication skills and the development of law clinics as dynamic organisations. I think outside the box and enjoy being part of citizens’ initiatives – just like the legal aid movement.
I am studying in my 9th semester and have been part of the refugee law clinics movement for about two years now. Last year I have been a board member in our local RLC and I am thrilled to be able to work on a national level this year! I will be supporting our members and posting all relevant information on our Social Media for the upcoming year.
