The project “Outstanding Women of International, European and Constitutional Law“ is an initiative of students and young scholars of the Faculty of Law at the University of Hamburg, inspired by an eponymous seminar held by Verena Kahl (Ass. iur., M.A.) and Prof. Dr. Markus Kotzur, LL.M. (Duke Univ.) in 2021. The aim of the project is to make distinguished women and their important contributions to the development of the national and international legal order visible and better known.
Since 2022, a pocket calendar consisting of twelve short portraits of outstanding women in the fields of International, European and Constitutional Law has been published annually to showcase women and their achievements as well as challenges they encountered throughout the course of their careers. Each calendar aims to feature women of different times and various backgrounds, following an intersectional approach.
In 2024, the project started a collaboration with the Verfassungsblog to publish detailed monthly portraits of the women presented in the calendar.
