Wisser, Laura Sophie
My name is Laura Sophie Wisser. In 2011 I started to study law at the University of Freiburg. From my first semester on, I joined the Arbeitskreis Kritischer Jurist*innen Freiburg, a university association of critical law students. As a member of this organization, I co-organized a lecture series on law and fascism as well as a congress on critical reflections on criminal law and police law. I then spent the Academic Year 2013/2014 as an exchange student at the University of Coimbra in Portugal, where I took classes in International Public Law, European Law, Roman Law and Legal Methodology.
Upon my return to the University of Freiburg, I chose Legal Theory and Legal Philosophy as my special focus of studies (Schwerpunkt) and started working at the Institute of Philosophy of Law as a student assistant. I also joined the editing team of ForumRecht, a quarterly student magazine on law and politics. In 2015, I decided to enroll in a bachelor’s program at the Department of Sociology, in addition to my law studies.
After completing my degree in law in 2018, I worked as a coordinator for LL.M. students at the Faculty of Law and continued my studies in Sociology. In February 2019, I began writing my PhD thesis on the constitutional requirements for admission into the police forces at the Faculty of Law. My work is part of an interdisciplinary research project at the Centre for Security and Society of the University Freiburg, supervised by Prof. Ralf Poscher, Director of the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Crime, Security and Law in Freiburg.
