The International Max Planck Research School for Comparative Criminal Law (IMPRS-CC) was established in the spring of 2007. It is dedicated to training outstanding young researchers from around the world. Researchers are selected from applications received in response to international announcements published on the homepage of the Research School; however, unsolicited applications are also welcome. The training, designed as a two-year program, is supported by the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law and the University of Freiburg Faculty of Law. The language of instruction is German.
