Bremens Bürgermeister Andreas Bovenschulte

Alumni Talk with Mayor Andreas Bovenschulte on 20.9.22

In Bremen he is probably our most prominent alumnus: President of the Senate of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen, Dr Andreas Bovenschulte.

He studied law at the University of Bremen from 1987 to 1994, then from 1995 to 1998 he worked as a research assistant, during which time he completed his doctorate in municipal law.

That sounds like the best foundation for what was to come professionally. And that's exactly what Dr Bovenschulte will be talking about in our online Alumni Talk on Tuesday, 20th September 2022, at 7 pm.

In the late 1970s Bernhard Docke completed what was then a single-phase law degree at the University of Bremen. He was admitted to the bar in 1983 and has practiced since then in Bremen as a lawyer and criminal defence attorney. His most prominent case: Murat Kurnaz, who was held for more than four years in the US prison at Guantanamo Bay and was tortured there. Thanks to the untiring efforts of his mother and Bernhard Docke, Murat was finally released and returned home to Bremen. A film based on this dramatic story, Rabiye Kurnaz vs. George W. Bush, won two Silver Bears at the Berlinale and is now showing in theatres.

New date for the Online Talk (in German) on Tuesday, 28 June 2022, 7.00 p.m., because Bernhard Docke has been invited to the Peace Prize of German Cinema award ceremony in Munich on 21 June.
