Despite political and legal efforts to advance equal opportunities in higher education and to break down barriers, inequalities and social asymmetries can still be observed. The lecture deals with the question of equal opportunities in law as a classic elite profession and asks about the mechanisms that lead to the fact that it is still characterised by a striking social exclusivity.
Dr. Anja Böning studied law, educational science and sociology in Marburg and Bochum. Her work focuses on inequality research, anti-discrimination, legal gender studies and sociology of law. She directs the In Iure working area Gender in Law at the Faculty of Law of the FernUniversität in Hagen.
