International Max Planck Research School for Comparative Legal History (IMPRS)
in cooperation with the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main
Promoting young researchers
The „International Max Planck Research School for Comparative Legal History (IMPRS)“ is an international PhD program of the Max Planck Institute of European Legal History as well as the Goethe University Frankfurt am Main.
The research seminar promotes German and foreign researchers who aspire to obtain their doctorate in the field of legal history.
The IMPRS dedicates itself especially to research studies with a comparative character and also includes studies on non-European legal cultures. “Legal history” is seen in a broad sense from antiquity to contemporary legal history. The comparative approach can thereby be laid out chronologically in a horizontal or vertical way.
The research objectives can be taken, e.g. from the area of social, scientific, institutional or dogmatic history. Likewise, norm or context oriented projects can be studied. The research seminar is supervised by renowned legal historians. Furthermore, numerous foreign legal historians support the work of the IMPRS and refer suitable candidates to the school.
