Louisville (USA)

A close relationship has existed between the Department of Law and the Brandeis School of Law at the University of Louisville in Kentucky, USA, since 2014. Since 2020, students of the Department of Law have the opportunity to study one or two semesters at the American law school free of tuition fees.

In addition, there is an academic exchange and research program that enables professors and young academics (doctoral candidates, post-doctoral researchers, etc.) to spend research and teaching periods.

Brandeis Law School was founded by and is named after one of the most famous and influential U.S. Supreme Court Justices of the 20th century, Louis Brandeis [https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_Brandeis]. It is one of the leading universities in the Southern and Midwestern United States.

Louisville is an active student city and the most important city in the region. Among other things, the world-famous Kentucky Derby is held here; the sports teams are multiple U.S. champions. Chicago, Nashville, Memphis and other Midwest cities are within a few hours' drive, as are the natural beauty of the Blue Rich Mountains or the Ohio and Mississippi Valleys. The cost of living is manageable.
