University Admission Law

We work for university applicants throughout Germany in the field of university admission law. DIEKMANN Rechtsanwälte represents you vis-à-vis universities and higher education institutes at which you wish to study, but for which you have not received a place from the university or Stiftung für Hochschulzulassung (foundation for university admissions, formerly ZVS).

Every year, the German federal states and their universities define the number of available university places. Often the capacity report has errors, and there are opportunities to gain a place outside of the defined capacity using legal assistance. The “university place suit” comprises several procedures that are required to obtain a university place through the courts.

We can advise you even before you have even received your letter of rejection, support you in selecting places to study where it would be worth lodging a suit and support you throughout the objection proceedings right up to the court ruling.

Should you, too, wish to lodge a suit for a university place, it is important, due to ongoing deadlines, that you contact us immediately upon receiving your letter of rejection. We would be happy to explain the opportunities and risks, as well as further steps and incurred costs, in a personal consultation.
