Johannes Großekettler LL.M.

German-Qualified Lawyer (‘Volljurist’) & IP Enthusiast /


In November 2016 I passed the Second German Legal State Examination and thereby finished my legal traineeship in Hamburg. At the moment I prepare for a second attempt (‘Verbesserungsversuch’) as well as a presentation on “Moral Rights and 3D Printing” that Professor (Dr.) Mira Sundara Rajan invited me to make in April at a copyright conference in Glasgow.
