David Werdermann

Lawyer and case coordinator

"The Basic Law offers protection against oppression and arbitrariness. It guarantees democratic participation and a life in dignity. To ensure that it can deliver on these promises, we bring appropriate cases to court."

He then worked and conducted research on migration and constitutional procedural law as a research assistant at the Institute for Political Science and Philosophy of Law at the University of Freiburg.
