Nationwide, only the Universität Hamburg offers the study program Maritimes Business Law. Donors who deal with maritime law, donate to the UHH Germany Scholarships, to interest excellent law students in this field of law and in their company, during their study.
For the law firm Dabelstein & Passehl and the Germany Scholarship holder Svenja Breckwoldt-Jung, this cooperation with the UHH was a benefit: After the law firm offered the scholarship holder the opportunity to take part in a practical seminar with foreign partners in the first year of funding, she was hired as a scientific associate in the second year of funding. After completing her study, she now is a full-time employee at the law firm.
Prof. Dr. Dieter Schwampe, partner of the law firm, who also gives lectures on maritime insurance and transport law at the UHH, is extremely satisfied with this win-win situation: "The Germany scholarship helps us to find excellent young professionals".
