The faculty of the Osnabrück Summer Institute on Law, Language and Culture includes international scholars from various fields and disciplines whose work has marked them as established specialist in the interdisciplinary study of law and legal culture.

For each of its annual sessions the school will invite a selected group of scholars as workshop hosts to join the main faculty, as well as distinguished guest lecturers and panelists for focus lectures, round tables and the closing student symposia.

All faculty members and lecturers will also be active as advisors and mentors in the further development and the future programs of the school.
