The Institute organizes the annual Hamburg Forum, which covers current issues of corporate and capital markets law and related areas of law. The presenters at the Hamburg Forum are renowned academics and practitioners. Furthermore, the Institute undertakes research projects (such as the recent ones on “Administration of public take-overs in Europe” and “European Capital Markets Law – Unity in Diversity”). The results are published in the ICCML book series released by Mohr Siebeck publishers. Last but not least, the ICCML promotes academic education in corporate and capital markets law at Bucerius Law School.
