Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
The university was founded in 1810, and the foundation concept which Wilhelm von Humboldt had put forward made it the “mother of all modern universities”. This concept envisaged a “Universitas litterarum” which would achieve a unity of teaching and research and provide students with an all-round humanist education. This concept spread throughout the world and gave rise to the foundation of many universities of the same type over the following 200 years. Today, the University covers all the major academic disciplines and has approximately 40,000 students. The Law Faculty has approximately 3,500 Students.
